K-8 Workshop
Schiele Museum
Gastonia, NC
Since 1976, Project Learning Tree has been using trees as a lens into our natural and built environments and “teaching students how to think, not what to think” about complex environmental issues. Check out this short video to see some activities in action and hear from students and teachers!

***Join other K-8 classroom and nonformal educators as we explore activities in the Project Learning Tree K-8 Curriculum Guide. Every participant will leave the workshop with the PLT K-8 Activity Guide which includes 96 activities correlated to the NC Standard Course of Study and Essential Standards. 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.
Participants will be actively engaged throughout all PLT workshops; gaining content knowledge, directly experiencing PLT activities, and networking with other formal and nonformal educators. All PLT workshops offer CEU renewal credits and qualify for Criteria I and/or II of the NC EE Certification Program. The K-8 guide is correlated to the Common Core (math and ELA) as well as to the NC Essential Standards (science and social studies).
