What's Your Temperature?

Learners take a look at the local newspaper and focus on the weather section. They get into small groups, and each one looks at the same map, but of a different part of the country. They must prepare a presentation that shows how latitude and longitude affect the weather patterns in three different cities. The groups present their findings to the class, and everyone discusses how latitude and longitude can be used to help predict the weather.
