Cornell Note Taking System THE GEOGRAPHY OF BRITAIN MAIN IDEA DETAILS Weather & Climate
mild, temperate climate (prevailing SW winds)
changeable weather patterns (different air masses)
temperature extremes (-10 to 32 C)
South warmer than North (latitude)
West milder than East (North Atlantic Drift)

Time to Timeline!
Each group should take 2 sections and become experts on that era
Make some Cornell Notes of the passages and be ready to share with the class
Collectively, we will make a timeline of important events in British history
