Data resources for educators
The data resources for educators collection is designed to help educators find NOAA and NOAA-related data resources that range from classroom ready, student-friendly interfaces to raw real-time and historical data. The resources are grouped into several topic areas and may be cross listed if they fall under multiple categories. Classroom ready resources are defined as those resources which need little or no teacher preparation before sharing with students. The other pages include data portals or resources that are related to the following topics but not necessarily packaged for classroom use: ocean and freshwater, climate, weather and atmosphere, visualizations, cryosphere, and historical. These resources often contain interactive interfaces and information that can be downloaded to a spreadsheet program. Resources near the top of the list are easier to integrate into the classroom, while entries lower in the list might possess a higher degree of difficulty to integrate.
