2 Q. How do I follow the hyperlinks in the slideshow? A. Right click on the link and select Open Hyperlink – the link will open in a new Internet Explorer window. Q. Why does pasting information into the table cause it to resize and look terrible? A.Dont cut and paste into the table, especially into the weather summary box. The formatting of the original text can cause problems. You should enter the information by hand. Before You Begin – Q & ABefore You Begin – Q & A Did you save this file to your network drive?

3 Getting Started – What Do We Do? There are two main tasks each day: 1) Entering weather information for the day. The weather data comes from… - The school weather station, your observations, and N.B. highway cameras 2) Completing an additional learning activity. - Your responses are entered directly into this slideshow in most cases. See also the worksheets. - If you complete the activity for a specific day, you can move on to the next activity. Use the Links in the Look Into It section on the bottom right hand corner to answer the questions.
