PLT’s Activity Collection provides content in support of an identified theme for a particular grade level.
Each collection offers hands-on activities for teachers and nonformal educators, youth group leaders and home schoolers, to connect youth to nature and the outdoors.
Designed to be flexible, the activities that comprise each collection can be used as individual, stand-alone lessons, or all together as a cohesive unit of instruction using a storyline technique.
