Students can perform simulated experiments on solar energy, weather forecasting, beach erosion, and scientific inquiry. Once they’ve completed the experiments they can move to the assessment component for writing or data analysis activities. They can also build a model of a raindrop, simulate weather patterns, observe the formation of weather fronts, or learn the difference between a snowflake and diamond. The software also contains writing assessment and data analysis activities, multimedia presentation resources, and a printable teacher’s guide.
