Description: BAKERSFIELD EDUCATORS! Improvement District No. 4 (ID4) of the Kern County Water Agency (Agency) is proud to be a facilitator of Project WET (Water Education for Teachers). Project WET is an environmental education program that promotes awareness, appreciation, knowledge and stewardship of water resources. The teacher workshops provided by ID4 feature classroom-proven, hands-on learning activities that make water topics come alive for students.
The Project WET workshops model activities that are practical for teachers, while also engaging students’ critical thinking skills. During the practicum portion of the workshops, ID4 supplies teachers with materials for their classrooms. Teachers enjoy using Project WET lessons, because they are designed to complement existing curricula, rather than replace it. All activities correlate to the Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards.
