This workshop will focus on the PLT K-8 Guide and the secondary module, Focus on Forests. Please dress appropriately to be outside for part of the workshop. Both evenings are required.

Project Learning Tree (PLT) is an interdisciplinary environmental education program designed for educators of ANY background. The hands-on activities facilitate the exploration of topics including communication, economics, energy and fuels, geology, government, history, recycling, transportation, watersheds, wildlife, and much more! Participants will learn about the materials through direct engagement in the PLT activities throughout the workshop.

Differentiated instruction? Technology connections? Literature links? STEM? The PLT activity guide covers it all!!! The PreK-8 guide is correlated to the Common Core (math and ELA) as well as to the NC Essential Standards (science and social studies). CEU renewal credits are available. This workshop qualifies for Criteria I in the EE Certification Program.

Workshop materials (a $35 value!) are provided at no cost to participants through partnership with the NC Forestry Association, however, pre-registration is required. Please make a personal commitment to attend to ensure there are enough materials and space for everyone. Cancellations made by the registration deadline will receive a $10 refund. Cancellations after this date will not receive a refund.
