NHPLT and our partners develop resources specific to New Hampshire’s forests to supplement the national curriculum and support educators in making local connections.
Scope and Sequence Models for Building Vertical Science Literacy demonstrate how science knowledge and skills should be vertically integrated through grades K-12.
The NH Frameworks for Science Literacy (Sep 2006) serve as a guide for curriculum development in the state’s K–12 schools. Teachers are encouraged to use the frameworks to develop a sequence for teaching key concepts or themes that lead their students through a progression of steps designed to increase their knowledge and understanding of a specific topic from grade to grade.
We developed three scope and sequence models as examples of how vertical integration can be accomplished. The models are based on three universal science themes covered in most New Hampshire schools and commonly taught at several different grade levels.
NH Field Investigation Models guide teachers and their students through an authentic scientific inquiry process, based on existing field investigations in NH.
Educator’s Guide to New Hampshire Forests is a series of fact sheets designed to help educators teach about New Hampshire's forests.
Focus on NH Forests provides details about our forests for the nine activities that are most popular among NH educators trained in PLT's PreK-8 Activity Guide.
Exploring Environmental Issues in NH introduces high school teachers and students to complex environmental issues facing NH forests.
Project WEB Newsletter was published through 2013 as a joint effort by Project Learning Tree, Project WET and Project WILD in NH. Each issue is thematic and contains feature articles, a calendar of events, suggested activities and announcements about opportunities and resources available to NH educators. Archived newsletters are available for download at the link above, which will redirec to the NH DES website.
Correlations to NH Curriculum Frameworks identify which PLT activities meet state curriculum frameworks in English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.
