This guide uses a thematic approach to show the integration of subjects (reading, mathematics, language arts, science/fine arts) and skills to create a context for learning. The contents of this guide are presented in a holistic format. There are six major topics in the guide, each with subtopics: (1) "Getting Your Feet Wet--An Introduction to Water"; (2) "Fishy Business--Applying Economics"; (3) "The Big Splash--Water Sports, Athletes, and Water Animals"; (4) "Where in the World--Famous Explorers of the Past"; (5) "Water Mysteries--Myths, Legends, and Strange Occurrences" (Loch Ness Monster and Atlantis); and (6) "Join Hands for Tomorrow's Water--Global Responsibility." Each topic is divided into different subtopics and each topic includes: (1) a divider page showing topics and subtopics; (2) core knowledge--the base level of information that the teacher will draw upon to use in direct instruction to the students; (3) activity--including objectives which relate to subject areas, materials needed for the lesson, directions for the activities; (4) water experiments; and (5) lists of books and resources for the teacher.
