What is MEECS?
MEECS stands for Michigan Environmental Education Curriculum Support. The goal of MEECS is to provide students in grades 3 through 9 with an opportunity to learn more about their environment through lessons in Science and Social Studies. The MEECS curriculum consists of seven different curriculum units; Air Quality, Climate Change, Ecosystems & Biodiversity, Energy Resources, Land Use, Land and Environment, and Water Quality. The units have been field tested by 120 teachers in nearly 200 Michigan classrooms. The units can be used individually, or used together by a school system as the basis of a multi-year environmental education curriculum.
