I am teaching a foresty unit for the first time. I am looking for labs, activites and other lesson plan ideas.
Thanks in advance.
A couple things you could do are:
Teach the students how use a tree stick
est the age of a tree using an increment borer
teach the students how to ID different types of trees
I teach a forestry unit during my ENR course and use some of the stuff developed by Project Learning Tree....I have made adjustments to most of the curriculum I have used, but it tends to be good material. The website address is http://www.plt.org/ and there is plenty of material besides curriculum. Your local Forest Service Office may be another good resource. Good luck!
