The Schuylkill Center offers Curriculum Supplements to aid Educators of all types as they develop their classroom lesson plans.


Originally developed to meet the need for a classroom-based curriculum to fulfill the Pennsylvania state mandate for environmental education before the Pennsylvania State Academic Standards were created, CurriculumEarth is now used to supplement teachers’ classroom planning.

The goal of CurriculumEarth is to promote environmental literacy by developing feelings and appreciation for the earth through first-hand experiences. Each unit focuses on one major ecological principle necessary to understand a particular environmental problem. The lessons provide the opportunity to translate knowledge and values into personal action to improve the environment. Access our CurriculumEarth order form here.

Water Quality Interpretation Manual
The Water Quality Interpretation Manual explains the origin and importance of seven basic water quality parameters.

The manual defines each parameter, provides an explanation as to its source and importance to aquatic life provides levels harmful to aquatic organisms, and describes the way in which humans impact them.
