Here is an elementary school curriculum based on the interdisciplinary study of water, authored by Becky Dixon, Clear Creek Elementary School, Bloomington, Indiana.

This article describes a project on water undertaken by kindergarten students. The article first lists criteria that help determine the merit of a topic for study. A discussion of how the water project emerged follows. Preliminary work by the teachers, the formation of groups to explore specific aspects of water, and the results of each group’s work are then discussed. The role of the teacher in providing teacher-directed activities to complement project work is presented. The article also examines how the activities undertaken during a project meet state and local standards.
