Booking Lessons

Scheduling Lessons

  • EnviroChallengers can visit a school up to five times in one year.
  • For each day you schedule, work with other teachers in your school to book up to five lessons per day, if possible. We recommend having one teacher coordinate all of your school's lessons.
  • Please note, each EnviroChallenger lesson is approximately 50 minutes.

  • Please book only two lesson topics per day, per school (up to five lessons).

  • When scheduling, keep in mind block schedules, assemblies, in-service days, district holidays and vacations.

  • When scheduling lessons, please provide appropriate break times for EnviroChallenger educators as well as time to travel to each classroom.

How to Schedule a Lesson
