Teaching Tips

The link to how to measure cloud coverage does not work, so instructor will have to develop own method or research methodology.

Note that the data collection activity requires data to be collected over a period of time, more than three class periods.

There is an opportunity for the instructor to connect the three activities more closely together by asking some key questions.
