Imagine a typical classroom of children—the overhead fluorescent lights glaring down on the hard sterile surfaces that make up the desks and floor. Students sit motionless listening as their teacher describes plants, trees and insects. For many students, this is what environmental education looks like.
For students at Bicentennial Elementary School in Nashua and at other schools around the state who have Project Learning Tree-trained teachers, the natural world is their classroom. Physical movement connects students to living trees, blooming plants and crawling bugs providing a hands-on and interactive learning environment that fosters students’ creativity, inquisitiveness and problem-solving skills—essential qualities in this increasingly complex world.
NH Project Learning Tree provides teachers the tools they need to make nature their classroom.
