The teaching materials are being developed by Mrs. Denise Cheek-Spitler, a Spalding County Middle School teacher, in accordance with the Georgia Performance Standards, Common Core Curriculum, and National Science Education Standards in collaboration with Dr. Ian Flitcroft, a professor in the Department of Crop and Soil Sciences at the University of Georgia - Griffin Campus. As the K-12 Weather School website is an ongoing project, please contact Mrs. Cheek-Spitler with any comments as well as suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The information contained is developed in conjunction with CEISMC (Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics, and Computing) and the Georgia Space Grant Consortium. Additional information about the CEISMC and Georgia Space Grant Consortium, can be found at these websites:
We hope that you will find the information on this website useful in your classrooms. Together, we are “Making Weather and Science Fun in the Classroom”.
Welcome Students, Educators, and Meteorologists!
Bring the exciting world of meteorological science into the classroom. By using the instructional activities, demonstrations, and real time data on our website, you can bring REAL WORLD, contextual science to the inquisitive minds of K-12 students in the classroom.
The goal of this project is to bring weather and climate materials together for immediate use in K-12 Science classrooms through one web portal. You will find original material developed at the University of Georgia (UGA) College of Agriculture and Environmental Science as well as links and references to other great sites for additional information and references.
In addition to the science content materials, mathematics teachers can find an abundance of data analysis opportunities for their students by using real time and archived data from the www.georgiaweather.net website, which is linked to this site. There are several pages with data that can be graphed, as well as determining mean, median, and mode. Also, the website contains several graphs where students can develop their skills at interpreting graphs and analyzing data.
