This virtual workshop includes:

Zoom Kick Off Meeting- Join us for a time that works best for your schedule 1-3pm May 24th or 6:30-8:30pm May 26th. Meet your workshop facilitators, try out a virtual PLT activity, and get a preview of the self-paced online training. Participants also have a chance to win fabulous PLT door prizes!

Self-Paced Online Training- Engaging and interactive learning experiences demonstrate select PLT activities with simulations and video demonstrations. Lesson planning exercises help you plan how to facilitate activities with your students in your own setting. Explore local Colorado resources.  Workshop facilitators will also be available via class discussion boards and Zoom office hours to help answer any questions you may have. The self-paced online training will be open until June 15th. 

PLT’s PreK-8 Environmental Education Activity e-book includes 96 hands-on, multidisciplinary activities integrate core subjects like science, reading, writing, mathematics, and social studies. These easy to use, place based activities help youth learn how to think, not what to think about complex environmental issues.
