Project Learning Tree Kindergarten-8th Grade Curriculum and Kentucky Academic Standards
September 14, 2018
Project Learning Tree (PLT) is an award-winning, nationally known, environmental education curriculum for Pre-K through grade 8 youth. PLT instructs users on how to provide hands-on, interactive environmental education that helps youth learn HOW to think, rather than telling them WHAT to think about the environment. Activities include themes ranging from forestry, wildlife, and water to community planning, waste management, and energy. Join us for a fun day in the forest to learn about PLT and how to engage youth outside! Environmental education serves as a gateway for getting youth outside and active, as well as understanding the environmental systems we depend on. The PLT curriculum is a perfect way to provide educators with the tools they need to conduct more outdoor instruction.
Project Learning Tree Focus on Forests and Places We Live Secondary Modules and Kentucky Academic Standards
September 25, 2018
Join us for a day in the forest to participate in activities from two Project Learning Tree Secondary modules- Focus on Forests and Places We Live. Oftentimes, environmental education curricula is geared toward younger children and activities become less engaging for middle and high school youth. These two curriculum guides get older youth thinking about how forests are managed, community planning decisions, and more, and engage them in activities that make them think and form their own opinions about their surrounding environments.
Leopold Education Project and Kentucky Academic Standards
October 5, 2018
The Leopold Education Project (LEP) is an innovative, interdisciplinary conservation and environmental education curriculum based on the essays in A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold. Join us for a fun day in the forest to experience Leopold activities and learn about the resources provided through this curriculum. The Leopold Education Project is an excellent resource for teachers, Extension agents, and others, as it ties language and visual arts into outdoor, environmental education. All participants will receive a copy of A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold, the curriculum guide Lessons in a Land Ethic, and activity cards. Hands-on activities and discussion will enhance the use of literature-based environmental education and correlations to English and Language Arts Kentucky Academic Standards.
