Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide 2.0
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 Common Core Standards and with correlations to Next Generation Science Standards underway, 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 and an excellent resource for pre-service teachers.
