We will study the weather/climate characteristics of different places around the world. Students will work in pairs and check the daily weather conditions for an assigned city. The temperature and sky conditions will be recorded. A description of the city including latitude, elevation, terrain and bodies of water near that particular city will also be studied. Each group will also be asked to predict the weather prior to recording it. A poster will be completed at the end of the week. This poster will include a table of the week's weather conditions, a description of the city, and a sketched map showing the location of the city. A follow up to this project is that students will be asked to compare the various cities to determine the effect of each of the following:
