Transcript of "Geography and Climate of Southeast Asia"

  1. 1. GEOGRAPHY & CLIMATE of SoutheastAsia http://www.mapresources.com/southeast-asia-digital-vector-contour-map-se-asi-782423.html How geography and climate affect each country?
  2. 2. What are we going to do? 1. Look at the maps of Southeast Asia - try to pick out as many geographical features and other information as you can. - take notes 2.
