In this highly-engaging mini-unit on climate maps, students are taught everything needed to know about climate maps, their use, and their importance! ✮✮ This resource is now Google 1:1 compatible! ✮✮
This mini-unit begins with students understanding what climate is, why it is studied, and how it is different from weather. Students then learn how to read climate maps, understand how they are different from other maps, and realize what can be learned from them!
Lastly, students use climate maps to draw inferences about economic activity, agricultural production, and population density! Too, students draw conclusions from climate maps, physical maps, and thematic maps to understand how they all relate and "feed off one another."
Tons of fun, good practice with early map skills, and a great component to any unit!
