Project Learning Tree (PLT) is a comprehensive environmental education program that helps students develop skills in creative problem solving, critical thinking, evaluation, research, and decision making. PLT helps educators with balanced, non-biased learning experiences so students learn how to think, not what to think, about our complex environment (http://www.plt.org). Educators who participate in a PLT workshop receive a ready-to-use guide which actively involves students in the learning process. The activities in the guide are also correlated to the common core standards (http://www.plt.org/common-core). Choose from the Pre K-8 Environmental Education Activity Guide or the Secondary Environmental Education Program, Exploring Environmental Issues:  Municipal Solid Waste.
