Join the DEC at miSci for a special education workshop.
The cornerstone of Project WET is its methodology – teaching
about water resources through hands-on, investigative, easy-to-use
activities. In addition to educating students about water, Project WET
activities also develop skills – teamwork, decision making and problem solving
among them – that help prepare learners for the water resource challenges of
Project WET is driven by emerging water issues, changing
educational priorities and reform, new scientific discoveries and
break-throughs in how water is used, managed and protected, and the
availability of information technology and social connectivity.
The award-winning, NSTA-recommended Project WET Curriculum
and Activity Guide 2.0 continues Project WET’s dedication to 21st-century,
cutting-edge water education. Correlated to the Common Core Standards
(preliminary Next Generation Science Standards correlations are in review and
coming soon), the Curriculum and Activity Guide 2.0 gives educators of
children from kindergarten to twelfth grade the tools they need to integrate
water education into every school subject. The guide also includes numerous
extensions for using the activities in Pre-K environments. Featuring 64
field-tested activities, more than 500 color photographs and illustrations, and
useful appendices with information on teaching methods, assessment strategies
and more, this guide is an essential classroom tool. The guide is also an
excellent resource for pre-service teachers.
