The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) sponsors four nationally recognized, award-winning environmental education curriculum supplements in New Jersey. They are Project WILD, Project WILD Aquatic, Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) and Project Learning Tree (PLT).

Each “Project” features one primary activity guide with dozens of lessons that can be adapted for students in pre-school through the secondary grades. Offering over 325 lessons combined, the learner outcomes from the lessons in these guides (as well as lessons in two new guides for early childhood educators) are correlated with the curriculum progress indicators (CPIs) in most of the subjects in the 2009 New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards (NJCCCSs).

To view how the learner outcomes in each of the “Project” lessons align with the CPIs and certain NJ CCCSs, visit:

The Projects Correlation Matrix Database

Educators can use this database to see which CPIs in the various subject areas are investigated or practiced by students performing the lessons. Or, educators can review the curriculum correlation spreadsheet (in Excel) for each Project activity guide (see links below) to determine these same linkages.

Funding for the development of this correlation project was made possible by a grant received by DEP from the Environmental Education and Training Partnership (EETAP) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
