IPM Curriculum for CT

Box imageIzzy logo

The Integrated Pest Management coordinators at the University of Connecticut are working with Connecticut teachers to develop comprehensive curricula for children and young adults in grades K through 8. 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 may be scheduled by arrangement - contact Donna Ellis for more information.

If you would like to obtain printed copies of the IPM curriculum, please contact Donna Ellis or fill out the request form and mail to: Donna Ellis, UConn Department of Plant Science and Landscape Architecture, 1376 Storrs Road, Unit 4067, Storrs, CT 06269; phone 860-486-6448; FAX 860-486-0682; email donna.ellis@uconn.edu
