Web Site of the Week: National Weather Service: Weather Education

The National Weather Service’s Office of Climate, Water, and Weather Services has a strong outreach component. This “Education” page offers a range of materials for educators and young people which includes lesson plans, brochures, satellite image collections and career information for the fields of meteorology and climatology. The site doesn’t have a search engine, but visitors can scroll through eight topical sections, including “Classroom Materials”, “Careers in Weather”, and “Graphics, Photos, Images”. Science teachers won’t want to miss the “Classroom Materials”, as they can find materials on the “One Sky, Many Voices” project designed to bring together meteorology projects from around the United States together in a collaborative learning environment. Moving on, the “Graphics, Photos, Images” area contains a range of lightning photos and satellite images organized into categories like “Ocean Events”, “Severe Weather”, and “Tropical Cyclones.”  [KMG]
