{Wet 2.0 Image}   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, 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.  Through hands on investigations and simulations, students gain an understanding of not just what lives in water environments but the science behind water and its behaviors. 
 
 
The Project WET 2.0 Guide Framework:
  • Water has unique physical and chemical characteristics
  • Water is essential for life
  • Water connects all Earth systems
  • Water is a natural resource
  • Water resources are managed
  • Water exists within social constructs
  • Water resources exist within cultural construct
Workshop Schedules and Arrangements
Materials are provided in printed material form as a paper bound book.  Workshops may be arranged for your location or you may register to attend scheduled workshops listed on the DEEP Calendar of Events.
 
Workshops may be scheduled for:
 
Full Day -- provides in-depth lessons on collection of topics and applications to curriculum.  Each participant receives a Project WET 2.0 Resource Guide, student Discovery Booket(s), state related resource materials and resource speakers.
 
Half Day or 3 hour workshop -- provides participants with a specific topic focus and application for their classroom or educational needs and copies of materials, as they relate to that topic.
 
Sampler Session -- a shortened presentation and introduction to the materials and opportunities to acquire the resources through a workshop.  These last one to two hours and provide a sample lesson from the guide, rather than the complete guide.
