This set of guided reading and guided inquiry worksheets, PowerPoints and assessment directs students through a series of activities that review and build on their knowledge of climate types and climate graphs.
Students will learn the five major climate types and can begin to learn the Koppen climate classification system.
They will learn to read, analyze and interpret climate graphs and climate data.
They will use climate graphs and data to understand the climate shifts that occur through latitude differences, elevation differences, and proximity to an ocean.
They will use climate graphs and data to make generalizations about why specific climate types are located where they are.
This mini-unit was created with Microsoft Office Products and includes Turning Technology clicker activities embedded into the presentations. These can be edited or skipped based on your preference. I have also converted all the worksheets into PDFs if those are needed.
Students find these activities quite engaging. Enjoy! :-)
