These curriculum units are WONDERFUL, very relevant, and very helpful!. We will share them with educators who will definitely use them. I'm a curriculum nerd and I find these units to be awesome and very creative. The fact sheets are also super helpful. Again, thank you for spending the time and energy to create these resources. As you may know, the #1 thing that teachers request as they implement environmental justice education is lesson plans, so these are a big deal!
