Water on the Web
WOW lessons are designed for infusion into the existing science curriculums for college freshmen and advanced high school students. The lessons use the aquatic environment and real lake data to explore basic science concepts through two different approaches: a directed study ("Studying") and an inquiry ("Investigating") approach. The directed studies allow students to apply and learn concepts through direct, guided experience. The inquiry lessons provide a more open-ended opportunity for students to discover the same concepts. This module was selected as the 2005 Classics Award Winner of the Biology Discipline because it allows students to analyze real environmental data collected in several lakes over long periods of time. In addition the site provides sound pedagogical tools to help the students apply basic scientific concepts to analyze and understand the data.

A very thorough and complete study. I will definitely use this in my environmental class.
It does appear as if the editors are updating and keeping information current.
