PLT’s Carbon and Climate with MAEOE MD Green School Introduction
This day long course will give educators the information and  resources necessary to communicate carbon and climate issues through hands-on and engaging activities that help teach students how – not what – to think about the environment and their place within it. They also make teaching and learning fun. The unit is aligned with NGSS standards. During the morning, educators will learn about the MD Green School program and the necessary steps schools should take to be successful. In the afternoon, educators will participate in lessons from the Project Learning Tree Carbon and Climate e-unit which is designed for students in grades 6-8.
