Teachers' Tools

Forestinfo.org collects and evaluates existing educational resources related to forests. We list resources that are scientifically accurate and address key concepts on forests and environmental issues. These Teachers' Tools listings were created for the purpose of identifying and facilitating the distribution and use of educational materials that meet these criteria.

Resource Listings

To support high quality education it is important that educational products are:

  • scientifically sound,
  • able to link consumption and production of key raw materials used by society, and
  • accurately representing the consumption of raw materials, management of natural resources, and environmental impacts associated with production of the principal raw materials and associated products used by society.

Forestinfo.org collects and evaluates existing educational materials related to forests, forest management, and forest products. We determine if they are scientifically accurate and if the following concepts are addressed:

  • Everything is made from natural resources and natural resources must come from somewhere.
  • The gathering and processing of all natural resources have environmental impacts.
  • Responsible production and use of wood - a renewable resource - is environmentally sound.
