Yesterday was World Water Day and I posted about that and some resources for teaching about water in the classroom/
Water Planet Challenge is another great resource for teaching about water and water conservation and how to improve the health of the environment. The site has information and resources to help teachers inspire and encourage students to care about our water planet. The materials are geared towards middle and high school students.
The site teaches about water conservation and the environment and has action steps that students can do to not only learn about these topics, but actually start to help conserve water and clean up the environment.
There are great teacher resources and lesson and activity ideas and guides and there are also grants available to help teachers implement the lessons. Lesson resources include videos and links to other resources.
Sponsors of the site include Toyota USA Foundation, the NEA Foundation, and Discovery Education.
