Weather

Weather is the true cross disciplinary subject. It impacts history, biology & geology, informs health, can be modeled and understood using math, and is represented in art & music. And the differences in weather around the globe continue to shape the landscape.

The Daily Martian Weather Report

For a different perspective, check out weather on Mars.

From 1998 thru 2006, the Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft relayed weather data back to Earth. The Daily Martian Weather Report posted that information, and now archives the information. For Mars, a warm day might be in the -60's (Fahrenheit) and a cold night at -180's.

Using information like this, students can see that Earth is not the only planet with seasons.

Use the Internet to monitor major weather events and their effects in real time or on a day-by-day basis.
