Teaching Tips

Instructors could use this interactive as the basis for an inquiry activity. Have students plot differences in temperature or daylight hours for a location in the Northern Hemisphere and one in the Southern Hemisphere on the same graph. Teachers should ask students to infer the seasons from these data.
