Explore the Season Simulator

Introduce students to the Season Simulator by simply asking them to explore the features and functions of this valuable learning tool. Watch and listen as they discover how to move different parts and run the animation. To help students get orientated, challenge them set the date bar at the bottom of the simulator to the time of the fall equinox in North America (September 22nd). Their questions will reveal where to begin with more guided discovery.

To begin, just explore! Later, design Exploration Challenges to use with the Season Simulator.
