Gifts in the Moment offers Project Learning Tree (PLT) Curriculum. We found Project Learning Tree to be a natural fit to the No Child Left Inside Initiative. We were so impressed by the quality of the curriculum, we want to offer it to you or your organization.
Project Learning Tree® (PLT) is the American Forest Foundation's environmental education program that produces high quality curriculum materials for students in grades PreK-12. PLT provides training and professional development opportunities for teachers, non-formal educators, and pre-service teachers (teachers in training.)
PLT teaches students how to think, not what to think about the environment.
For over 30 years, Project Learning Tree has been taking kids outside to learn. We provide teachers with the training, resources, and support they need to get their students outdoors and learning about their local environment. In addition, we've adapted many PLT activities for families to use at home to help connect children with nature. --plt.org
PLT Activities are aligned with ISBE State Standards. As PLT certified facilitators, we can offer the hands on activities of PLT. We also offer teacher PLT professional development workshop, which is available as CEU's for Illinois educators. Upon completion of the professional development workshop, you will have access to the PLT curriculum to enhance your students learning experience.
