Fan Cart Simulation

In your training, there is an interactive that is linked to a powerpoint slide that looks similar to the one pictured here. Download the hyperlinked slide in Related Items if you would like to include the interactive when you implement the lesson in your classroom.

To make the interactive available to students who have their own devices, click Fan Cart Simulation, copy the url, and create a QR code or shortened link for easy access.
