### climate and biomes PPT 2

1. 1. Climate and BiomesInstructional PowerPoint to accompany Google Earth activity located at:http://serc.carleton.edu/eslabs/weathe r/4b.html
2. 2. Instructions:This PowerPoint is designed to be used as a supplement or alternative to the GoogleEarth activity described on this page: http://serc.carleton.edu/eslabs/weather/4b.htmlPre-lab Preparation:1. Print the PowerPoint 2 slides per page, preferably in color. If possible, laminate the cards for longevity. Prepare enough sets of cards for each of the lab teams.2. Print the a copy of the Whittaker classification scheme diagram for each lab team.3. Print a world climate map (http://www.eduplace.com/ss/maps/world.html) for each team.4. Optional: Provide a world map or globe for each lab team. Calculators may also be helpful for calculating average annual precipitation and temperature.Day of Activity:Students read the information on the cards and then sort the cards into stacksmatching them to the Whittaker classification scheme.Using the data on the cards, place the cards in the correct locations on a large worldmap or place location tags on a globe.fill in a chart, next slide, with the following information: name of the city; averageprecipitation and temperature; and biome type.Answer the Checking In and Stop and Think questions included with this activity.
