What do your students know about evaporation, absorption, saturation, precipitation, and pollution? This webinar will give you a wealth of ideas for step-by-step lessons that include experiments and other activities that will pique their curiosity about the many properties of water—and set them on the road to exploration and discovery. Along the way, they will also develop an appreciation for water as a fragile resource. You’ll also come away with a list of recommended reading to help further your knowledge (and theirs), relevant websites, and suggestions for materials that can support water work both inside and outside your classroom—many of which can be found right at home.
Marie Conti, MEd, is head of school at The Wetherill School in Gladwyne, PA, and the former AMS senior director of school accreditation & member programs. She has 35 years of experience in Montessori, wearing many hats: teacher, teacher educator, teacher education program director, school administrator, and regional group leader. In 2009, she was honored with the Montessori Teachers Association of Pennsylvania's Award of Excellence. AMS-credentialed (Early Childhood).
