Summer Solstice

Celebrate the summer solstice and come and see the longest day of the year.  Hourly images collected and recorded in the Windows Around the World program let us see and compare daylength from Hawaii to above the Arctic Circle in the Northwest Territories, CA.  The attached worksheet shows the images collected during the summer solstice in 2006.  Summer_Solstice.pdf

Thanks to Juanita Urban-Rich for this post:
Juanita is co-developer of Windows Around the World, a web-based exchange program for elementary students that uses visual images.  She will use this Blog to suggest ways you can teach polar science with this tool.

Hi Juanita,
I am right now concentrating on building educational material (flash-movies etc) for ANDRILL’s Arise Program and came to your site for ideas. Do you have any for me, or could you direct me to a page on that might deal with this?
