Lesson plans are created by the School-2-School team, as well as a group of School-2-School interns.
They are intended to be used by teachers to analyze real weather data in their classrooms. If you have a lesson plan and would like to share it, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will review it before posting it online for other teachers to use
You can also download a sample data set for two stations (TA00055 & TA00057) in Excel format here- S2S_SampleData (clicking on this link will download an Excel format workbook with two tabs, one for each station). Below is a tutorial with instructions on how to download the data. Many of the provided lesson plans require a TAHMO dataset.
If you have a station at your school and would like to access the data from your station please fill out the form here.
Once you have downloaded your dataset, please note that the time in the downloaded file is given in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) and not local time. To convert from UTC to local time, use the time zone to either add or subtract from the UTC time. The instructional video below will show you one method for converting the time from UTC to local time.
