The Planning Day in School curriculum is a series of original trademark activities through the YEP! organization. During a Planning Day in School event, participants in grades K-12, are educated about What Do City Planners Do?, Key Planning Vocabulary, Key Planning Icons, Map Exercises, the Imagine Your City Activity, the We Are All Connected Activity, the PLACE | MAT activity, a Planning Word Search, and more! A Planning Day in School event can be customized to fit the age and grade of your youth audience as well as strength of subject matter! Please email us to ask us how!
