  1. DataStreme Atmosphere - American Meteorological Society
    A major precollege teacher enhancement initiative of the American Meteorological Society (AMS). Its main goal is the training of K-12 Weather Education Resource Teachers who will promote the teaching of science, mathematics, and technology using weather as a vehicle. A 13-week course is offered twice a year to selected participants. It focuses on the study of the atmospheric environment through the use of electronically transmitted weather data and learning materials combined with Study Guide readings and investigations. more>>

  2. Meteorology: Does Weather Happen Randomly? - Richard Levine, Tefft Middle School, Streamwood, IL
    Does weather happen randomly or are there patterns that can be recognized? If there are patterns, what are they and how can we use them? Scientific skills involved are: collecting, recording and analyzing data; thinking creatively and critically, and communicating results. Students use graphs and spreadsheets to do investigations on the relation between altitude and temperature, latitude and temperature, the direction weather moves, atmospheric readings, the relation between dewpoint temperature and actual air temperature as a storm approaches, and atmospheric readings as a line of storms approaches and departs a reporting station, predicting the weather. more>>

  3. Project Atmosphere Australia On-line - Sel Kerans; Australian Bureau of Meteorology
    On-line meteorological activities open to international schools. The site provides access to Australian weather observations, forecasts, and archived weather statistics, with information designed to educate the general public about weather and related issues, for example the El Niño effect. It offers easily understood, factual explanations of weather phenomena and the statistic gathering process, with simple definitions for common climate terms and discussions of other weather phenomena such as cyclones, severe storms, and global weather change. Student activity occurs during March-May. Includes a newsletter, "Meteorology in the Classroom," classroom discovery activities, and Weather Data Activities, exploring the use of spreadsheets for graphing data on the computer. more>>
