The Integrated Pest Management Curriculum for Connecticut
THE CONNECTICUT CURRICULUM FOR
INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT
The Integrated Pest Management coordinators at the University of Connecticut are working with Connecticut teachers to develop six comprehensive curricula for children and young adults in grades K through 12. These curricula are intended to illustrate the application of the science, math and language arts taught in our schools to solving the environmental and human health problems facing society and to introduce the concepts of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to the younger generation. The interactive, easy-to-follow lessons and supplemental resource materials will enable participants to make environmentally sound, economically smart decisions when facing the growing problem of pest management.
The curricula for grades K-1, 2-3, 4-5, and 7-8 are now available and the curriculum for grades 5-6 is currently in press. Workshops will be scheduled throughout Connecticut. Curricula for grades 9-12 will be developed over the next two years.
