Today we learned how to create graphs to show monthly average temperature and precipitation. We then practiced although the sample blank graphs had some inaccuracies - sorry. We ended the class by reviewing page 104 to see the different climate regions of Canada. I asked students to come to class tomorrow ready to make some observations about each region based upon the graphs that we made and the ones found on page 105 of the text.
ex. Calgary, on the edge of the Semi-arid and Cold Winter region has a precipitation pattern that is the opposite to ours: their wetter season comes in the summer and their winters are quite dry. Also, while our temperature is moderate (0-25 degrees) all year, they have a cold winter and a moderate summer.
