The RinkWatch team is developing curriculum-linked activities for using rink and weather data to help teach math and science for grades 4-6. These activities are based on curriculum guides for the province of Ontario, but should be applicable across most provinces and states. The links below allow educators to download free teacher's guides and black-line masters for student activity sheets. We have deliberately left these documents in MS Word format so that teachers may modify the contents to suit their own individual needs and teaching styles. Our sole request is that teachers provide feedback on the utility of this resource and offer suggestions for improvement via the RinkWatch website. These documents are subject to copyright. School boards, textbook authors, and publishers who wish to reproduce them in whole or in part for commercial purposes or mass dissemination should contact www.rinkwatch.org for written permission prior to doing so.
