Climate Around the World
Our K-5 Global Gateway lesson plans are student-centered and follow a PBI structure of:
-ASKING a compelling question.
-INVESTIGATING & ANALYZING resources, information and knowledge.
-SYNTHESIZING what you learned & CREATING a product of your learning.
-SHARING the product of learning with others.
-REFLECTING on the learning experience & REVISING the product of learning.
In the lesson, Climate Around the World, students will examine weather and climate through a community-based investigation and compare those findings with the climate in their global region of focus.
1) Identify similarities and differences between their own community and the region/country of focus.
2) Describe the climate of a particular area and how it affects the lifestyle and culture of its people.
3) Understand and explain how and why people in different areas of the world adapt to and/or modify the physical environment to meet their needs.
4) Identify how climate affects the art, music, literature and other aspects of a region’s culture.
