Lesson plans are created by the School-2-School team at TAHMO, 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 to walk you throw how to download the data.Many of the lesson plans require a TAHMO data-set. If you have a station at your school and would like the login and password to download your station’s data, please email email@example.com with the school name and we will email you back the proper credentials. If you do not have a station at your school but would still like to participate you can download data from stations in different countries using the username “guest” and password “guest”. This login is valid for stations:
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 time zone can be found on the School2School.net website for each station under the name of the school. The instructional video below will show you one method for converting the time from UTC to local time.
