Project Learning Tree?

Our school is starting to have clubs twice a month and I have been assigned the Nature Club for 4-5-6th grades.  I was wondering if this would be something to use for the club????  I looked at the website but there are no trainings close to me anytime soon.

Thanks for your input.

Vicky...I attended a weekend workshop  that used Project Learning Tree several years ago,  learned a lot and really enjoyed it as well.  There were a lot of active activities given in the guide.  It was a large book.  I wish I had kept my copy when I retired, but perhaps your school system or local library might have a copy. When I helped sponsor our school Garden Club, the Forestry Commission and our local extension agency visited and did programs for us, too.  Good luck!

Spring is coming. A nature activity that I love in the spring, is listening to the trunks of trees with a stethescope. You can hear the sap running.
