In this project, students will explore one of the 11 sub-climates of the world: Tropical Wet, Tropical wet and dry, Arid, Semiarid, Marine West Coast, Mediterranean, Humid Subtropical, Humid Continental, Subarctic, Ice Cap, Tundra, and Highlands.
Students will work in small groups (I had groups of 3-4) and research one of these climate zone and create a poster to display their findings. The requirements include two climographs using real-world data, a world map showing the locations of their sub-climate, captioned pictures showing the geography, as well as plant and animal life, and a paragraph describing the climate.
Included in this purchase are student handouts:
-a grading rubric
-a blank world map
-instructions for climograph data
-climograph blank template
-Group Sign-up sheets
