Educators in many disciplines recognize interdisciplinary teaching as effective for student learning. This article provides a model for developing an interdisciplinary literacy and science study with states of water as the core scientific study with corresponding literacy strategies. Authors have included suggestions for children's literature as well as science experiences to use with this study. This water model provides teachers a base for developing studies that integrate their literacy and science curricula. (Contains 1 figure.)
