This workshop will cover the PLT K-8 guide and the secondary module, Focus on Forests. Participants will receive copies of both curriculum guides. Activities in both guides are correlated to the NC Standard Course of Study and Essential Standards. You can view our correlations on this web page.


Join other K-12 classroom and nonformal educators as we explore activities in the Project Learning Tree K-8 Curriculum Guide. The PLT activity guides are provided free of charge to participants through support from the NC Forestry Association. CEU renewal credits are available. This workshop qualifies for Criteria I in the EE Certification Program.

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). Participants will learn about the materials through direct engagement in the PLT activities throughout the workshop. Please bring a bag lunch and prepare to be outside!

Please make a personal commitment to attend to ensure there are enough materials and space for everyone. Cancellations made by November 7th will receive a $10 refund. Cancellations after this date will not receive a refund.
