Here are some great resources to support you with virtual programming
Birds and Worms Simulation
In this free short simulation created by PLT, students pretend to be birds in search of food. This simulation explores the underlying concepts of how animals use camouflage. For example, which color “bug” will be the easiest for predators to locate in the chosen setting?
Every Tree for Itself Simulation
In this free short simulation created by PLT, students pretend to be trees as they compete for essential resources. This simulation explores the underlying concepts of how trees grow. For example, what might happen to an individual tree when there is an inadequate water supply?
Many PLT activities are easily adapted to virtual learning. Whether you already have a favorite PLT activity or are new to PLT, check out these “twists of the trade” suggested by PLT coordinators.
Virtual Makeover: The Closer You Look
Virtual Makeover: Looking at Leaves
Virtual Makeover: Sounds Around
These videos walk youth and families through activities that they can complete at home.
