Where the natural world becomes your classroom ...
Project Learning Tree®
For 30 years, Project Learning Tree has been taking kids outside to learn.
How? By providing educators with the tools, training and resources they need to bring the environment into their classrooms, and their students into the environment. More than half the 96 activities in PLT’s new Pre K-8 Environmental Education Activity Guide take students outdoors.
Each year, some 25,000 educators attend PLT workshops around the nation to learn how to integrate PLT into their everyday lesson plans. To date, 500,000 educators have become part of the PLT community.
Why? Because PLT works. PLT is thoroughly tested to assure students learn from our activities. Not just about the environment, but across the entire curriculum.
Oil City Elementary Magnet School in Louisiana has been recognized nationally for its dramatic turnaround in student performance on state assessment tests.The entire faculty has received PLT training each year for the past five years and teachers use PLT outside with their students almost every day.
