Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in Schools: Curricula

Covers resources related to integrated pest management in K-12 schools.


IPM curricula appropriate for all grades are available to help guide the learning process. Many are complete with lessons, activities, and teaching standards. Several also have introductory materials for children to share with parents and are designed for use in the home environment.

This section offers a selection of high-quality educational tools for teachers. Links to existing integrated pest management materials are provided, including the following:

  • Multidisciplinary educational K-12 materials
  • On-line curricula (many are linked to local and or national standards) and activities developed by education experts that promote IPM in schools
  • Professional development for school administrators, school boards, and educators

It is not within the scope of this project to offer curricula for IPM professionals and applicators.
