Michigan Forests Forever
The Michigan Forests Forever teacher’s guide project is an effort to provide information for teachers and classrooms about forestry, especially concerning Michigan’s forests. Michigan has nationally outstanding forests, a long history of forest management, and forests and the forest industry is vital to the state (and not just in monetary terms). Forestry is a marvelous topic for integrated education and using benchmarks from science, social studies, English language arts, and mathematics.
Michigan State University Extension hopes that the Michigan Forests Forever materials will be used statewide in an effort to heighten the awareness among students about the vital connection between people and forests. The materials provide an easy-to-use, easy-to-understand, and easy-to-implement resource for the classroom.
