Our Climates lesson plan introduces students to the different climates of the world. During this lesson, students are asked to color in a printed map based on climate zones, such as polar, temperate, tropical, and more, which they research themselves online. Students are also asked to match descriptions to the climates they are describing, testing their understanding of the lesson material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define climate, compare and contrast climates, identify effects on a climate, and label climates throughout the world.
