This SPECIAL WET teacher-training workshop will be held on the steamboat SPLASH on the Delaware river in Lambertville, NJ (S.P.L.A.S.H — Student Participation in Learning Aquatic Science & History, a 501(c)(3) educational non-profit). Come learn how to incorporate some intriguing, hands-on water resource lessons into your curriculum while experiencing the steamboat, which can also provide an exciting field trip for your class!
As the whistle blows, this replica of an 1890 steam-powered stern-wheeler will take you on a 2-mile voyage on the Delaware River. Visit the steamboat on line at http://www.steamboatclassroom.org.
Each participant will receive a copy of the 500-page Project WET Curriculum & Activity Guide and six hours of NJ Continuing Education credit or Six Pennsylvania ACT 48 Credits. The Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide is a collection of over 90 science-based, interdisciplinary activities and lesson plans that are teacher-tested and classroom ready for K-12 students. Designed with a commitment to meeting educational standards, Project WET activities cover diverse topics and disciplines. Choose from activities such as "The Incredible Journey," "Pass the Jug," and "Macro-invertebrate Mayhem," for lessons that are sure to pique student learning. This guide is only available to educators who participate in a six-hour Project WET Workshop. The NJ Project WET Program has developed an amazing array of supplemental materials that focus specifically on NJ's water resources. The lessons in the guide are correlated to the NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards.
