Project WET's Make a Splash Water Education Days provide plentiful learning opportunities for elementary students and preservice teachers. At these annual, all-day events held in nearly every state across the country each September, students participate in interactive activities and exhibits to learn about water resources and explore how human behaviors, such as development and recreation, can affect the quality of our country's waterways.

I love the ideas presented in this article. The ideas of project-base learning are always fascinating to me because they take the pressure off of the teacher while still enriching students with a valuable learning experience. Giving the students an opportunity to learn about water resources and what we can do to protect them teaches students to value the environment through action and practice rather than lecture. It also gives students the opportunity to get out of the classroom and see how these concepts can be applied into our daily lives. I love it!
