Project WET Instructional Resources
Resources for Parents and Educators Open During Pandemic
The Project WET Foundation in the United States has provided access to some of their free educational resources electronically in response to the COVID-19 school closures. These resources are available to teachers and parents. The materials include books, workbooks, ideas for hands-on activities, and an online game. Many of these materials are available for electronic download. Additional materials and on-line training programs are available for purchase in US funds (please note that physical materials ordered would ship from the US).
