Socials 10-4: Tuesday, 30 Sept: Climate graphs and the climate zones of Canada

Today we started by reviewing the physiographic regions of Canada and then I reminded you how to convert climate data in a table to a graph.  We talked about how pairing the graphs with a map will give us a better sense of what the different regions would be like to live in.  We discussed the difference between a wet (humid West Coast cold) and a dry (Eastern cold).  Next you created four climate graphs: remember that the line that joins the temperatures should be fluid and not necessarily join each dot perfectly.  For homework, please read pp. 104-105 in the text and copy the climate regions from the map on page 105 onto a blank outline map of Canada (shade and label the zones). Thanks for your good work today.
