WWD_2014_logo_EN

This coming weekend marks the celebration of World Water Day 2014, held on March 22 each year, and it promises to be a wet weekend at The Global Classroom Project.

1) World Water Day International LinoIt Project 2014

For the past three years, the WWD LinoIt Project has given students around the world the opportunity to share their thoughts, photos, and experiences of water conservation with the wider world.

This year’s project will run from March 19-25, and will be jointly hosted by Class 5, from School 1302 in Moscow, Russia and Robyn Thiessen’s Grade 4/5 class in Canada. We are also looking forward to working with Project Purus, who are raising to provide clean water for school children in Nepal. 

Please bookmark the 2014 LinoIt and share with your class using this link – http://bit.ly/worldwaterday2014.
