Florida PLT School Program
WHY BECOME A PLT SCHOOL?
PLT offers educators a way to connect students with their natural world, sparking interest and curiosity through cross-curricular activities. Research tells us that children do best when they are engaged in their learning through hands-on experiences. When children experience PLT activities that are incorporated regularly into classwork, they become actively engaged. PLT and environmental education in general encourages students to research, investigate how and why things happen, and make their own decisions about complex environmental issues.
Enrolling in the Florida PLT School Program offers strategies and resources to ensure that these opportunities are provided to students at your school each year.
