Join classroom and nonformal educators as we explore climate-related activities in Project Learning Tree's Explore Your Environment K-8 Activity Guide and the secondary module Southeastern Forests and Climate Change. Participants will also receive access to PLT's Carbon & Climate E-Unit. This workshop is geared towards educators working with middle and high school students, but is open to anyone that is interested in the subject and materials. Every participant will leave the workshop with a copy of both printed guides and online access to the E-Unit, a $70 value for all materials! CEU renewal credits are available. This workshop qualifies for Criteria I in the EE Certification Program (K-12). 

The K-8 guide includes 50 hands-on, multidisciplinary activities to connect children to nature and increase young people’s awareness and knowledge about their environment.  All the activities in the K-8 guide are supported by a robust Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) correlation guide, help build durable STEM Skills, and include differentiated instruction strategies. The Southeastern Forests and Climate Change secondary module addresses climate change impacts on southern forest ecosystems, the role of forests in sequestering carbon, and strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to changing climatic conditions. The module is designed for use in life science, environmental science, and agriculture courses in grades 9-12, with potential use in middle school or community college courses. Lastly, the Carbon & Climate e-unit was developed for grades 6-8, and is an integrated online unit provided through PLT's online portal.

The PLT activity guides are provided free of charge to participants through support from the NC Forestry Association. If the registration fee for this workshop is a barrier for you, please reach out to the the NC PLT Coordinator, Renee Strnad, at renee_strnad@ncsu.edu
