Classroom Resources

For copyright purposes, AMS Teacher-Training modules have not been made available online.

However, through an agreement with the AMS, Environment Canada has produced “Project Atmosphere Canada.”

Project Atmosphere Canada (PAC) was a collaborative initiative of Environment Canada and the Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (CMOS) directed towards teachers in the primary and secondary schools across Canada. It is designed to promote an interest in meteorology amongst young people, and to encourage and foster the teaching of the atmospheric sciences and related topics in Canada in grades K-12. Material in the Project Atmosphere Canada Teacher’s Guide has been duplicated or adapted with the permission of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) from its Project ATMOSPHERE teacher guides.
