SYRCL’s River Education program is now offering free Project Wet Trainings for teachers! These trainings target water conservation and watershed health, introducing educators to Project Wet’s standards-based curriculum guide by reenacting activities, reviewing program standards, and guided collaboration. Trainings are offered at the elementary and secondary level. All attendees will receive a free copy of the Project Wet Curriculum and Activity Guide 2.0. Trainings are 6 hours long, and teachers have the opportunity to earn continuing education credits.
Project WET uses interdisciplinary activities to integrate water education with concepts from science, math, language arts, social studies, and environmental studies. The activities are designed to supplement existing curriculum and include the use of Education & the Environment Initiative (EEI) curriculum units. All activities are correlated to Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.
Project WET (http://www.projectwet.org/) is an award-winning water education program for educators and young people. The program facilitates and promotes awareness, appreciation, knowledge, and stewardship of water resources by providing top quality, integrated, classroom-ready teaching aids. The program was established in 1984 and is run by a network of organizations throughout the United States. In California, the program is coordinated by the Water Education Foundation (http://www.watereducation.org/), based in Sacramento.
