Elementary/Middle School Workshops
Project Learning Tree
Project Learning Tree uses the forest as a “window” on the world to increase students’ understanding of our environment, stimulate students’ critical and creative thinking; develop students’ ability to make informed decisions on environmental issues, and instill in students the commitment to take responsible action on behalf of the environment.
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.
