Ecosystems 3

  1. 1. Upton-by-Chester High School Geography Department Ecosystem: Temperate Climates Lesson 3
  2. 2. To understand what Britain’s climate is like. WALT WILF All: to be able to describe Britain’s climate and interpret a climate graph. Most: To be able to give reasons for Britain’s temperate climate. Some: To be able to give detailed explanations for Britain’s climate.
  3. 3. WILF 4) Give detailed explanations for Britain’s climate. 3) Give reasons for Britain’s temperate climate. 2) Interpret a climate graph. 1) Describe Britain’s climate.                                                
  4. 4. Temperate climate Describe the location of temperate climates. Starter
  5. 5. Climate graphs These are a combination of a bar graph and a line graph. Temperature is shown on a line graph, with the figures being shown on the right side of the graph. Rainfall is shown by a bar graph, with the figures being shown down the left side of the graph. Britain’s Climate Temperature Rainfall
  6. 6. Killer question 1 Describe Britain’s Climate. Britain’s Climate
  7. 7. Level 7 Model Answer: The British Isles have cool summers and mild winters. The temperature ranges from about 5 degrees celsius in the winter to 18 degrees celsius in the summer. The range in temperature is 13 degrees celsius. It rains all year round with generally higher rainfall in the winter. The lowest rainfall is in the spring. The total annual rainfall is approximately 900mm.
  8. 8. Look for patterns in the temperature data Ask yourself the following: Is the temperature the same all year round? If it is different, how many seasons does the location experience?   Which season is the warmest? Is it warm (10 to 20°C), hot (20 to 30°C) or very hot (30°C)?   Which season is the coolest? Is it mild (0 to 10°C), cold (-10 to 0°C) or very cold (below -10°C)?   What is the range of temperature? (Subtract the minimum temperature from the maximum temperature). Look for patterns in the rainfall data Ask yourself the following:   Does the rainfall occur all year round?   What is the pattern of the rainfall? Check which season (s) is/are drier or wetter than others.   What is the total annual rainfall? Add each month's total together to get the annual total.   Then put the rainfall and temperature information together - what does it tell you about this place? Prompts which will help you to give a detailed description
  9. 9. Self Assessment <ul><li>Look at your work. Do you describe and interpret the climate graph ? </li></ul><ul><li>Do you write in enough detail compared to the model answer? </li></ul><ul><li>Look at your Learning ladder and decide which level you answer should receive. </li></ul>

  11. 11. I can… Learning ladder level Yes or No I have written in detail. Yes or No I have described the climate of Britain and interpreted the graph. Response Self Assessment 1
  12. 12. First let us review what we did last lesson Why does Britain have a temperate climate? Use the table to collect the evidence Other ideas Rainfall Prevailing Winds Distance From the sea Latitude
  13. 13. Latitude Equator Equal amounts of heat From the sun Earths surface at Angle to sun is cooler Earths surface facing the sun is hotter Earths surface at Angle to sun is colder Britain North Pole South Pole
  14. 14. Distance form the Sea
  15. 15. Winter Prevailing winds The prevailing wind is the direction from which the wind usually comes. The prevailing wind in Britain is from the south west.
  16. 18. Homework <ul><li>Answer killer question 2 using the table you used to collect the evidence and the writing frame if you need it. </li></ul><ul><li>Carry out a self assessment using the table and your learning ladder. </li></ul><ul><li>To be handed in on Monday 28 th April. </li></ul><ul><li>Remember – write the answer in your book and try your best! </li></ul>
  17. 19. Killer question 2 Why does Britain have a temperate climate? How do I start my answer? Britain has cool summers because… Also… Furthermore… Britain has mild winters because… Also… Britain has lots of rain because… Also… Furthermore…
