Project Learning Tree is an award-winning environmental education program designed for teachers and other educators, parents, and community leaders working with youth from preschool through grade 12.
PLT's GreenSchools program inspires students to improve the environment at their school, at home, and in their community. Student-led Green Teams apply STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) to create greener and healthier schools—and save schools money!
Five hands-on, student-driven investigations are at the heart of PLT's GreenSchools program.
Each investigation details specific things for students to measure and observe, along with student worksheets to fill out and guidance on how to combine data collected into a school-wide analysis.
This printed guide includes all five of PLT's GreenSchools Investigations plus an Adult Leaders section with tips on how to form a Green Team, suggestions for how students might conduct the Investigations, and ways to obtain grants for action projects.
It also provides information on the importance of greening schools to make them healthier places for students and teachers to learn and work, and specific examples of how the GreenSchools Investigations support STEM education.
