Pilot Test New Activities


Project Learning Tree is currently revising and updating its flagship curriculum, the PreK-8 Environmental Education Activity Guide. As part of this project, we’re seeking educators to pilot test five new activities to be included in the guide.

A small stipend will be available for educators who complete the pilot activity and an online evaluation tool. Applications to participate in the pilot test are due March 8th and the pilot test will be held in April.

5 New PLT Activities

The five new activities to be pilot-tested explore the following:

- The emotional and physical benefits of being out-of-doors

- How trees and the urban forest affect the livability of our communities

- Equity and environmental justice in our communities

- The value of forest product certification for people and forest

- The environmental effects of using wood versus other materials

On-the-ground pilot testing is essential for developing high-quality curriculum. The goals of this pilot test are to assess grade level appropriateness and usability with students, as well as to gather feedback and suggestions for enrichments, differentiated instruction, and more.


Teacher Review

For this pilot test, we are looking for educators working with youth in Grades 3-5 or 6-8. Both non-formal educators (nature centers, afterschool programs, Boy Scouts, etc.) and formal (classroom) teachers are encouraged to apply.

Educators interested in helping with this effort are invited to complete a brief application by March 8, 2019.
