Welcome to LAUNCH! We’re excited you are interested in leading your students as they create meaningful environmental change in their community through our project toolkits.

What is LAUNCH and How Do I Use It?

LAUNCH is made of simple “toolkits” that provide step-by-step instructions for how you can lead your students to start and complete an environmental project in your school or community. As an Educator, you can use these toolkits as supplemental lesson plans, after school activities, extra credit projects and so much more! LAUNCH is a great way to start exposing your students to environmental topics and help cultivate life-long passion for sustainability.

What Does Each Toolkit Provide?

Each toolkit is a self-sustained “project in a box” that includes:

  • Learning objectives
  • Step-by-step lesson plan
  • Reflection questions
  • Real-world application
  • Educational materials on specific climate change topic areas
  • Handouts
  • Materials list
  • Estimated time to complete the toolkit

How Do I Get Grades of Green Staff Support?

Everything you need to complete the project is right inside the toolkit. However, if you need additional support – no worries! Email us at anjulik@gradesofgreen.org and we’ll be happy to assist you with any questions you may have.
