Michigan Project WET - Educator Information
The Project Wet Curriculum and Activity Guide 2.0 is a collection of innovative, interdisciplinary activities that are hands-on, easy to use, and fun. Designed and committed to state, provincial, and national educational standards, Project WET activities cover diverse topics and disciplines. It is published by the Watercourse, which has many other water publications for K-12 students and teachers. The Guide is only available at trainings. In other words, when you get trained, you will receive the guide. Unlike other Watercourse publications, the guide cannot be purchased separately.
Educator training for the Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide 2.0 occurs throughout Michigan. A network of facilitators from a variety of organizations has been trained to deliver the six-hour training workshops.
NEWS FLASH: If you have been trained in Project WET and want to obtain the new 2.0 guide, national Project WET has a re-training webinars available. In person training can be arranged as well. Please contact Janet Vail for details.
At the training workshops, participants learn about Project WET, practice activities from the Guide, and discuss curriculum connections. The Guide has been correlated with the Michigan Curriculum Framework. The 2010 Alignment of Michigan Content Expectations with the Project WET Guide is available online in three parts (Part 1 Part 2 Part 3). Hard copy and a CD is available.
Main themes in the Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide include:
- Water has unique chemical and physical characteristics
- Water is essential for all life to exist.
- Water connects all earth systems.
- Water is a natural resource.
- Water resources are managed.
- Water resources exist in social and cultural constructs.
Numerous interdisciplinary activities for elementary, middle, and high school students address these themes.
