Some 4-H resources on weather and climate

Yesterday I talked about a basic class on weather and climate that is available for adults who are interested in the topic. Today I want to mention a few resources for 4-H that might be useful for kids in grades 3-6. I don’t know anything about pricing (some are free resources) but if you are interested you can follow the links to get more information.

AgroClimate: Weather and Climate Variability 4-H Toolkit at http://agroclimate.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/weatherAndClimateVariabilityToolkit.pdf. This was developed for Florida so is probably the most applicable specifically to the Southeast, and it is free!

Shop 4-H Weather and Climate Youth Learning Lab: Https://shop4-h.org/products/4-h-weather-and-climate-learning-lab-leader-s-guide. They also have a 4-book series on weather and climate ($) at https://shop4-h.org/collections/weather-climate-science-collection?_ga=2.208670166.576446357.1591789965-1181231527.1591789965.
