Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) is an award-winning, nonprofit water education program and publisher. The program facilitates and promotes awareness, appreciation, knowledge, and stewardship of water resources through the dissemination of classroom-ready teaching aids and the establishment of internationally sponsored Project WET programs. The Water Education Foundation is the California Coordinator for Project WET.
The Contra Costa Water District invites you to this wonderful hands-on training and take-away materials for immediate use in your classroom. You’ll experience a wide-range of activities that will spark student interest through investigations of their own environment – all of which have been correlated to Common Core and Next Generation Science standards.
Project WET activities are designed to supplement existing curriculum to promote the awareness, appreciation, and knowledge of water resources in a manner that is fun, hands-on and informational for learners of all ages. Every Project WET activity was created by teachers for teachers and each incorporates nationally recognized education principles and practices.
The interdisciplinary Project WET activities are correlated to Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards and are an effective tool for integrating student knowledge of water resources with activities that include real life scenarios that provide strong foundations for STEAM and Service-Learning programs. Project WET activities are designed to support and expand on existing curriculum, including the use of EEI (Education & the Environment Initiative) curriculum units.
Each participant will receive: Hands-on experience with great water conservation activities and California specific content, a copy of the Project WET Guide 2.0 which includes free access to 40 additional Project WET activities, lunch and an opportunity to receive CEU credits.
