School started today across much of the Red River Valley. For educators looking to incorporate lessons about water into your curriculum a great place to start is Water on the Web! This website is most applicable to high school and college level students. Started by an NSF grant in 1997, the site has enough information and data to keep you busy for a full semester.
For teachers of younger grades, Project Wet and Minnesota's Aquatic Education Program - MinnAqua offer curriculum and activity guides for water education. Laura Bell is a Project Wet Facilitator and can be reached through the University of Minnesota Crookston if you have a group of teachers interested in a workshop. Nadine Meyer with the Minnesota DNR is the coordinator for the MinnAqua Program.
