LT: Create a poster which identifies Earth climates and specific conditions which influence the region's climate
1. Use Figure 5, page 489 as a guide to color your poster
2. For each factor (pages 484-487):
a. Use a diagram / captions from the text or another source
that represents how that factor affects climate.
Advanced work is an extension of the basic information
provided by the text.
b. The descriptions of each factor should "interact" with the
map. For example, Imagine the poster as a screen on your
computer and this is a page on a website. As you “mouse”
over the map and encounter a feature like the Sierra
Nevada Mountain Range, the drawing / caption for rain
shadow would“pop up” or “zoom in”. This would explain
why the mild, marine west climate transitions into an arid
climate as you go from west (the coast) inland.
Show on the map (arrows, symbols, code) regions where
these factors occur.
3. Neatness and accuracy count!
