MICHIGAN FORESTS FOREVER TEACHERS GUIDE

 


MICHIGAN FORESTS FOREVER
CLASSROOM EXERCISES & ACTIVITIES
   
TreeSign.jpg (15262 bytes)

The following table lists the exercises and activities included within this website.  The column on the left will take you directly to the activity webpage.  The column on the right shows where in the website the exercise / activity is used, with a hyperlink to that particular page or pages.   Each exercise / activity is located in a "library" and most have been keyed to the Michigan Curriculum Framework.  Have fun!

Note:  Few activity pages have completed write-ups.  Currently, most of the activities have been selected from Project Learning Tree Pre K-8 Guide, and some from the high school guide.  While we do not have permission to provide the exercises on-line, we are allowed to provide an idea of what each exercise is about.  Some sections of the website need activities or additional activities.  Most likely, the process of building this Activity Library will be ongoing as new activities and exercises are created or brought to our attention.
