“I loved doing all five [modules]. The modules were amazing! They were engaging, and the students enjoyed it.”

Author name

“I liked that WaterWays pulled a lot of standards like water cycles, conservation, and adaptations together and helped the students understand it more.”


“Kids kept asking, “Can we do it again?” and a lot of them would go look at it again during their downtime”


“WaterWays itself was amazing. The whole program was great. I would like to see it expanded in more different skills or standards!”
