Abstract

Developing unique educational strategies that integrate emerging technologies often result in the development of interdisciplinary lesson designs. The paper presented will describe the lesson for middle school students developed as a collaboration between university professors, classroom teachers, and forestry officials from Project Learning Tree. Beginning with the idea that the forest serves as an excellent math and science classroom, the lesson incorporates handhelds, laptops, multimedia software, Internet resources, online learning activities, and field experiences using forester's tools into a cross-curricular exploration of the relationships among growth, physiology, and the utilization of trees through scientific inquiry.
