High School Workshops
Project Learning Tree
Environmental issues are complex. At Project Learning Tree, our goal is to teach students how to think, not what to think about complex environmental issues. PLT’s secondary modules teach high school students the importance of informed decision-making on issues that affect the environment. The activities encourage students to engage in debates about real-world environmental, social, and economic issues on specific topics.
Project Learning Tree has several engaging secondary modules for students in grades 9-12. Some of these materials are available for purchase; others are available only through a PLT professional development workshop. Secondary Modules include:
Correlated to Common Core Standards and with correlations to Next Generation Science Standards underway, the Curriculum and Activity Guide 2.0 gives educators of children from kindergarten to twelfth grade the tools they need to integrate water education into every school subject.
Additional Project WET materials include:
Project WILD’s core curriculum resources include the Project WILD K-12 Curriculum and Activity Guide as well as the Aquatic WILD K-12 Curriculum and Activity Guide, which focuses on aquatic wildlife and ecosystems. Spanish-language versions of activities from both of these guides can be found in Proyecto WILD.
The Project Underground Education Program provides materials and activities on karst resources. The lessons in the Project Underground guide can be used to teach citizens of all ages about karst topography and the management needs of the karst resources. Use these materials with students in classrooms and in outreach programs with citizens and agency staff.
