Finding out more about climatic zones

  • Choose a climatic zone eg: polar, temperate or tropical.
  • Choose a place within your climatic zone and search the internet to find live weather data for this place.
  • Complete a monthly temperature and rainfall or temperature graph in your topic book for your location, or alternatively you could download the graph directly from a website. See this example: https://weather-and-climate.com/average-monthly-min-max-Temperature,blackpool,United-Kingdom
  • Produce a rainfall/temperature graph in your topic book of Chorley for comparison.


Learning outcome: you can describe the major pattern of world climate and explain why equatorial regions are hotter than polar regions.
