This new K-6 lesson plan guide was developed to help meet the mandate in SB 1051 (Texas Legislature, 1993) for the TNRCC to develop solid waste curriculum. As you will notice, we have included air and water lessons to meet the TNRCC's mission of consolidated environmental programs. This is the first effort to combine air, water and waste lessons in a single guide. The lessons in the guide were written by teachers who attended the TNRCC's Teaching Environmental Sciences (TES) courses. The lessons were reviewed by TNRCC's technical and education staff for accuracy.
