Teaching Tips

Educator should explore the entire 'New to the Site' and 'For Teachers' sections of the activity and do a run-through of the tool before students use it.

Younger students may require a more guided-inquiry approach (step-by-step worksheet).

This could be a self-guided investigation for students or utilized as a class investigation. Educators could use the interactive then jump into further investigations based on those scenarios by using the other activities in the teacher section.
