Environmental Principles and Concepts

Environmental Principles and Concepts (EP&Cs) are unique to California.  These 5 principles are embedded in our common core standards across subjects.  The EP&Cs highlight the deep relationship between humans and the natural world.
How do we teach the EP&Cs?
While the EP&Cs are embedded in our reading, social science, and science standards, we have a strong focus on science here at Fryberger.  Project-based learning units are specific to a grade level and allow students to spend a significant amount of time exploring, investigating, collaborating, and becoming passionate about their learning.  Students begin the school year diving into the science curriculum through project based learning.  Each learning project has reading and writing standards built into lessons.  During the second half of the school year, the focus turns to Environmental Science.  Students become passionate about their community and the world.
