Review for Environmental Volunteers, Inc., Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Many years ago as a classroom teacher, I thoroughly enjoyed having the EV bring hands on activities for my students followed by a coordinated and meaningful field trip. Now as a retired science educator, I love the opportunity to be a volunteer myself sharing my enthusiasm for the natural world with children. Given that there is little time in the elementary classroom day for science, I believe that the EV experiences are so important for young learners. It’s especially valuable that the EV kits/lessons are coordinated to the California State Science Standards by grade level so that students glean a deeper understanding of what is in their curriculum.
