I have personally used so many of the educator resources here that I can confidently recommend them without reservation. Below is a list of the resources available on the atmosphere for FREE. This offer is for the 20th anniversary celebration of CORE and the offer expires in December of 2008. Products will still be available after this time, but not for free. Right now, all you do is pay shipping costs. 2 items are $7, 4 items are $14, and 6 items are just $21. Remember, there are literally thousands of products available at minimal costs. Details on ordering the products are available at the bottom of this page. And, you can also visit the NASA CORE home page at http://core.nasa.gov.
