Free Weatherguide Curriculum

How can the Weatherguide help you ignite your students' love of nature and help them become responsible Earth stewards?

The Calendars in the Classroom program, developed by the Jeffers Foundation and Freshwater, allows teachers to incorporate simple lessons that weave environmental values into other academic areas. The program provides step-by-step, hands-on lesson plans in topics such as meteorology, phenology, and astronomy. Factual scientific charts, documents, and images complement a wide spectrum of Minnesota Academic Standards.

The Minnesota Weatherguide Environment Calendar, designed by Freshwater, is the perfect addition to any classroom or any homeschooling situation.
