Multi-disciplinary, hands-on lessons for all grade levels make teaching and learning fun!

Teach Many Disciplines

Environmental education is especially good for incorporating science, technology, engineering, art, math (STEAM), civic skills and green career pathways. Students develop leadership skills and apply science, technology, engineering, and math to make a difference in the real world.

PLT’s workshops are highly engaging and active learning experiences that provide participants the knowledge, skills, and inspiration to teach environmental education.

About the Workshop

The PLT program is characterized by three equally important components:

  • high-quality instructional materials for grades PreK-12,
  • carefully designed professional development, and
  • an extensive distribution and support network.

PLT’s instructional materials for early childhood through grade 12 can be used with students in formal school settings and with youth in nonformal settings. Our hands-on activities make teaching and learning fun. They connect children to nature, engage students in learning, improve student achievement, and grow 21st century skills – including the ability to think critically and solve problems.

Instructional Materials- Free when you attend the workshop!

PLT’s high-quality units and lesson plans supplement existing curriculum in schools and enhance educational programming in nonformal settings. The activities can be integrated into lesson plans for all grade levels and subject areas (especially STEM, reading, writing, and social studies). Topics range from forests, wildlife, and water, to community planning, waste management, and energy.

The activities are practical, hands-on, and fun, and aligned with state and national academic standards, including the Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core State Standards, College, Career, and Civic Life Framework, Head Start, and the National Association for the Education of Young Children. In addition, PLT connects with nonformal education programs. For example, PLT activities meet the requirements for Girl Scout Badges and Journeys. Learn more.
