Make a splash in class this year with Project WET (Water Education for Teachers). The most important element for human life on Earth is water. In today's society, water is often taken for granted. Project WET provides teachers (grades K-12) with the necessary tools, resources and lessons to help teach students about the importance and value of water in every day life. The awareness of, and respect for water resources begins in the classroom!
The Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide is a collection of more than 64 science-based, interdisciplinary activities and lesson plans that are teacher-tested and classroom ready for K-12 students. The lessons are correlated to the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards and cover an array of diverse topics and disciplines.
The Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide is available to educators only if they participate in a six-hour Project WET professional development workshop. Teachers who attend a WET workshop will receive professional development credits. Keep as is.
Schedule a FREE workshop for your school or district. NJ Project WET will supply a facilitator and Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guides to schools or districts that have 10 or more teachers who can attend a six-hour workshop. The workshop will be provided at your site and we will work with you to taylor the workshop to your groups needs.

Teachers and students can now learn all about water-our most precious natural resource-through fun, interactive games and lessons at DiscoverWater.org. Young visitors can play games, read stories, watch videos, print coloring pages and commit to taking action to improve water resources, while educators and parents can use the site to teach engaging, science-based lessons around water.
Targeting learners aged eight to 12, DiscoverWater.org shows children how water affects them-and how they can affect water. The web experience also brings important water lessons to life in a way that makes learning fun and encourages today's children to be tomorrow's responsible stewards of water resources.
DiscoverWater.org combines kid-friendly illustrations and animation with engaging, science-based activities covering everything from the water cycle and oceans to water conservation and the role of water in the human body. Students can also collect "Take Action" items throughout the site and create their own personalized printable "Take Action Poster" to help them remember how they can conserve and protect water.
For educators, the website provides additional teacher-specific resources such as assessment methods and supporting activities. DiscoverWater.org is aligned with National Science Standards and has been field tested with educators and children.
