Life Tree Learning Systems is about creating cultural curriculums that strive to strike the student’s imagination by using hands-on, experiential and scientifically based learning activities. Yes, this means that we want the students to be so excited and engaged in their learning that this passion for learning becomes a lifelong habit; where students learn not just to earn some extrinsic reward, but because the learning is inherently rewarding and enjoyable. Towards that end, LTLS has created physical, biological and social science curriculums.
This particular curriculum is on Physical Geography, focusing on our home planet, Earth. It includes 36 completed Activity Cards and 25 pages of support materials that include: 1 colored checklist, 9 blackline masters, 2 sets of matching cards, 12 control posters/charts (many are colored) and a puzzle. At $20, this curriculum roughly breaks down to $.50 per activity and this doesn't even include the support the materials! Often one set of 3 part cards can cost $20!.
