In this climate map worksheet, learners read a definition for a climate map and then study the example map of Turkey and its key. Students use the map to answer the six questions.
In this climate map activity, students read about the type of map, then use a climate map of Turkey to answer 6 short answer questions.
In this vegetation map worksheet, students read about vegetation maps, then use a map about plant life in Africa to answer 4 questions.
Fifth graders obtain information about climates of the world from a variety of sources. In this library science and climate instructional activity, 5th graders find information about world climates and include them in a graphic organizer.
In this world climate map worksheet, students examine the tropical, dry, warm temperate, cool temperate, polar and sub arctic, and highland climate regions of the world.
For this world climate map worksheet, students examine the tropical, dry, warm temperate, cool temperate, polar and subartic, and highland climate regions of the world.
In this world climate map instructional activity, students see a global grayscale climate map with an associated legend. There are no directions given with this instructional activity.
Model how the sun's energy strikes the planet and help your class relate it to a climate map. Assign small groups an individual climate zone to discuss. They reflect on and research how humans survive in the assigned climate and write a description to share with the rest of the class.
In this reading and interpreting a climatic map instructional activity, students determine the weather conditions in the state of New York and answer comprehensive questions. Students write 3 answers using complete sentences.
In this map worksheet, students analyze a climate map showing precipitation in the Southwest region. Students use the map to answer 4 short answer questions.
Emergent scientists examine the unusually warm winter of 2011-2012 (called the “year without a winter”) and its effect on blossoming times and pollination. Groups engage in a weather information scavenger hunt, compare climate maps, and collect data from the US and Europe. They then theorize how the data they have collected explains the unusual weather of 2012. Discussion questions, activities, and extensions are included in the richly detailed plan.
Eighth graders investigate the water cycle and its processes. They examine temperature and precipiation data to classify climate of ten cities. They then create a climate map of the world.
A sequence of slides starts with a guide for the instructor, but then presents all of the steps for the class to follow in order to access the Geography Network. Viewers are guided through an activity studying maps and analyzing data about habitats and weather. Excellent!
Students research on the internet to understand the difference between weather and climate. In this weather versus climate lesson plan, students research the internet, read a climate zone map, look into the climate zones, and present their findings to their group.
Students explore rainfall and habitats. In this rainfall lesson plan, students explore the relationships among rainfall, vegetation, and animal habitats. Resources are provided.
Learners explore climate and weather conditions. Using the Internet, and other activities, students examine climate maps and the factors that affect climate. They examine how climate affects clothes, shelter, food, transportation, activities, feelings and the way of life of people who live there. Learners create a mobile to visually demonstrate the climates around the world. This instructional activity includes over 15 activities for students.
In this map comparison worksheet, students read about population and climate maps, then use one of each type of map about Brazil to answer 8 questions and complete an activity about living in the rain forest.
Learners record and examine migration data, and calculate how fast and far a migrating animal travels and what influences its progression. They utilize the Journey North website to follow their migrating animals.
Students visit the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and explore the different careers offered by them. They ask questions and view the grounds.
Environmental science learners examine satellite imagery of temperature, vegetation, precipitation, and productivity. They use these maps to understand how scientists divide the planet into major biomes. As part of a larger unit on biomes, this lesson is a vital piece.
