Water, Water Everywhere [Video]


I just learned that today is World Water Day. From the website:
International World Water Day is held annually on 22 March as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.
So, in honor of World Water Day, I thought I'd share this water education story from Classroom Close-up, NJ circa 2006-07. It was just the second segment I'd ever produced for the show and it's one of my favorites. I've had the song, Water, Water Everywhere, stuck in my head ever since the day we shot it. Enjoy.

Read Across America: I'm Pretty Sure We've Got This One Covered [Video]

Today is Read Across America day. Looking at the shooting schedule, I was surprised to see that there isn't an intrepid Classroom Close-up, NJ producer out there somewhere in the great garden state trying to corner The Cat in the Hat for an interview. That's okay, though, I'm pretty sure we've got a few stories about Read Across America in the show video library. Here are just two, both recorded last year that aired earlier this season.

Enjoy, and after you're done watching, go find someone to read to.
