Data in the Classroom: provides curriculum guides for using real scientific data to investigate earth processes. Each guide focuses on a topic (sea level, water quality, and El El Niño) and starts with a question: How are sea levels monitored and measured? How is water quality monitored? How does El Niño really work? (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration)
