EnviroChallenge At HomeThe EnviroChallengers Have Gone Digital!

Every weekday while school is out, the EnviroChallengers will be sharing an "EnviroChallenge of the Day" to support student learning.


The challenges align with state standards, can be tailored for different ages, and, in typical EnviroChallenger fashion, will entail a lot of fun! 


Check out all of the challenges below, posted daily, or follow us on Facebook at facebook.com/TacomaES or Instagram @tacomaenviroservices.


Stay tuned for additional resources and learning materials to keep your students engaged!
