The environment is an important issue in the classroom these days, and teachers are always looking for current resource material. There is a wealth of good lesson plans and activities out there, but it is nice to see a large corporation doing its part in educating our youth about helping the environment.

General Motors has a dedicated site that offers what appears to be excellent units that can be used for teaching a number of subject areas. GM has also lately teamed up with Weekly Reader (online education magazine) for a more direct approach.

“As global energy demands continue to increase, GM is committed to doing its part to offer solutions by developing vehicles that can be powered by many different energy sources including E85 ethanol, diesel, electricity and hydrogen,” said Elizabeth A. Lowery, GM vice president, Environment, Energy and Safety Policy. “Young people today have an opportunity to be part of the movement that develops solutions to these energy issues, and GM’s commitment to education in the areas of math, science and technology is aimed at encouraging them to be a part of that effort.”
