Teachers from Oklahoma and Kentucky have developed a series of K-12 lesson plans focused on science, math and social studies. You can search the lesson plans by grade level and content. Use the tabs and buttons to select a lesson of interest. You may review it or download it to your local hard drive. Some lessons ask that you download weather/climate data from the data tab. If you modify a lesson, or develop your own using our data, please share it with us. The "Students" page will be used to present exemplary outcomes from competitions and other activities.
