VIRTUAL LEARNING RESOURCES
Project WET is dedicated to advancing water education for people of all ages. This webpage contains a suite of free and discounted resources that educators, parents, and children can use to learn about water while meeting standards in math, language arts, science, and social studies. We hope this helps educators and students continue learning and exploring in the classroom and beyond!
This page will be updated periodically with new resources and tips, so be sure to check back occasionally.
Water touches every aspect of our lives—the cells in our bodies, the food we eat, the recreational activities that we enjoy, the weather and much more! DiscoverWater.org is a self-directed educational resource about different water topics—ranging from global to personal perspective—which together reflect many of the complex and important roles of water in our lives. DiscoverWater.org is designed for use by children ages 7-12 and for educators and parents of this age group, both in and out of a classroom setting. Although targeted for tweens, learners of all ages enjoy playing games on DiscoverWater.org!
EDUCATOR VIRTUAL TRAININGS
Professional development should be accessible to all educators, regardless of their ability to attend an in-person workshop. Below are some options for educators to receive continuing education units (CEUs) and learn how water relates to ALL subjects!
PROJECT WET CURRICULUM AND ACTIVITY GUIDE 2.0
Unable to attend an in-person Project WET workshop to get certified in the Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide 2.0? No problem! We offer an online certification. Work with your local Project WET Coordinator to take this training.
CLIMATE, WATER AND RESILIENCE
Project WET offers virtual training options for its educator guide, Climate, Water and Resilience. These trainings certify educators in the curriculum while helping them understand and feel comfortable teaching about climate change. Contact your Coordinator for a local training or take our asynchrounous training through our climate training pack.
Project WET has developed Get WET! Home Water Lessons that can be used for out-of-class assignments, distance learning or homeschooling. These hands-on activities allow students to explore various topics of water with materials found at home and meet NGSS and Common Core State Standards. These activities will be rotated periodically on this page.
PRE-K ACTIVITY ON WATER PROPERTIES
Explore the properties of water with pre-school children.
GET WET! STUDENT WATER LESSON: A DROP IN THE BUCKET
Upper elementary and middle school lesson on the availability of water on Earth
AND HYGIENE RESOURCES
Discuss healthy hygiene and healthy communities with early learners.
WATER FOR YOU AND ME! EARLY CHILDHOOD STORYBOOK
For younger learners, Project WET offers Water for YOU and ME!, a storybook with suggested activities to learn and observe water properties. It is designed for use by early childhood educators, parents, grandparents and anyone else who wants to help young children understand the importance of water to life and its use in keeping people healthy. This book is appropriate for ages 3-6.
STUDENT ACTIVITY BOOKLETS
In addition to hands-on activities to teach about water, Project WET offers over 70 titles of student activity booklets. Targeted for children ages 8-12, these colorful and interactive booklets allow
children to work independently or with a parent/educator. Although the target age is 8-12,
younger children may like to have these booklets read to them and older students
(even adults!) may find they learn something new!
We have both print and PDF options, so you can choose what is best for your needs.
