Before you read any further I would like to add that this site is not only for teachers in the classical sense. This site is made for anyone, whether they are an official teacher (or even an adult) or not. Enjoy!
Build a Dam
There's no better way to explain an idea than by hands-on activities. To educate our younger users (and those who find building stuff interesting, like me) we've built our own dam. This can work as a building activity or as a reading one as you don't need to build the dam to understand it because there are pictures. Start buillding your dam (or watching mine)

Do you want to print out the entire text. Here's the full document for just that purpose. You can choose between plain text format, HTML, Microsoft Word 97/2000, Microsoft Word 6.0/95, and PDF.
Projects & Essays
We've got loads of ideas for projects to do and essays to write. If you're having trouble coming up with ideas of your own or want something to hand to your students, this is it. We've also found some sources that you can start off with for each project. Use one of the following links to download the document. Overtime we will try to update this.
One of our forums is dedicated to teaching about water. It is a great place to try to find help or share ideas. Take a peak at the education forum.
