Connecticut’s Changing Forests: Tools and resources for teaching about forest health with Project Learning Tree
This workshop is designed for middle/high school teachers and non-formal educators who want to include forests in their curriculum. Using nationally recognized curriculum from Project Learning Tree, as well as local experts and guides, we will learn about current issues in Connecticut forests. Specifically, we will focus on the influence of gypsy moth in Connecticut’s forests. Teachers will be provided with hands-on lessons and ideas that will help them teach their students about forests while staying aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards.
