Before Scheduling a Lesson

  • Note that EnviroChallengers can visit a school up to five times in one year.
  • Please communicate with other teachers in your school to book up to five lessons per day (with a maximum of two different lesson topics per day).
  • We recommend having one teacher coordinate all of your school’s lessons.
  • Note that each EnviroChallenger lesson is approximately 50-60 minutes.
  • Keep in mind block schedules, assemblies, in-service days, holidays and vacations when booking lessons.
  • When scheduling lessons, please allow for appropriate break times for EnviroChallenger educators, as well as time to travel between classrooms.
  • Confirmations will be emailed to the coordinating teacher the week before the lessons.
  • Remember to complete the required pre-visit activity for each lesson.

How to Schedule a Lesson

Visit the online calendar and indicate the following: 

  • Name of the requested lesson
  • Time and date you'd like the lesson to start

Lessons should be scheduled at least one week in advance, and are not guaranteed until confirmed by the EnviroChallengers.


During a Lesson

  • Please limit class size to 30 students.
  • A teacher or other responsible adult must remain in the classroom while the EnviroChallenger educators are teaching.
