Collection of environmental educational resources by and for students

Gathered below are diverse resources created for educational work on children's environmental health issues. Some provide an overview of the issues and can be used by students and teachers alike. Others are resources of interest to elementary or especially high school students who want to learn more or get involved in creating a healthy environment, including reducing their exposures from commonly used consumer products.

All day long, whether travelling to and from school, out of doors and especially inside school buildings, the exposure of students to environmental contaminants can be reduced. These resources can help students get directly involved in creating a healthy environment.
