There are an infinite number of lessons to use during
field trips to
the school forest and wonderful activity guides exist already.
Don’t forget about the LEAF Forestry Lesson Guides, LEAF Urban Forestry Guide,
Project Learning Tree, Project Wild, etc…the list of good lesson guides can go
on and on. The lessons linked here are additional lessons created to help
infuse school forest field trips directly into your classroom curriculum. If
you have other lessons to share that link classroom concepts to the school
forest, please share them with Gretchen.

Special Note: The concepts listed that do
not contain a lesson can be taught at the school forest, we are just
looking for submissions and ideas. If you have a lesson that corresponds to one
of these concepts, please submit it (preferably in MS Word .doc or .docx
format) for inclusion to Gretchen
Marshall. Gretchen will review any lesson submitted related to biology,
chemistry, human anatomy and physiology, physical science, and physics that can
be taught outdoors. Lessons posted on this site include full attribution
for the source of the lesson, so please cite your submission, especially if you
are the source!
Also, if you have lessons for additional concepts not
listed, please submit those, as well. If you are willing to be contacted
by other teachers via email, please let Gretchen know.
