Place-Based Education (PBE) enables students to learn while addressing issues or needs which students themselves help identify in their communities or local environment.
Below are examples of place-based education projects which you may find helpful. Please add this page to your favorites (or your Pinterest board!) and check back, as we plan to include lesson plans from some of our teachers’ projects in the future.
We strongly encourage you to view PBE lesson plans as inspiration, trusting that you will take into account the voices of your students and community members and custom tailor projects to meet needs in your schools’ own neighborhoods!
