In the second instructional activity of a five-part series, young climatologists use provided temperature and precipitation data to create climographs of three different cities. They then analyze these climographs to develop a general understanding of how ocean currents affect climate.
- Have the class research temperature and precipitation of a local city and create a climograph
- Pupils need to know how to create line graphs and bar graphs
- Lesson builds on knowledge of ocean currents from previous lesson
- Includes reproducible blank climographs
- Teacher guide contains links to websites for further information
- There is no example of a climograph shown in the lesson, so some students may find it confusing to create one
