Climate Lesson
Do Now:
1. Explain the difference between “Weather”
and “Climate.
Weather vs Climate?
• Weather: Atmospheric conditions
(temperature, rainfall, etc…) at a specific
point in time (weather can change at any time).
• Climate: Atmospheric conditions
(temperature, rainfall, etc…) of a region
over a long period of time (over the period of a year
or longer).

- Climate
Zones of Latitude
- A region’s latitude (distance from the equator)
has a direct impact on its climate (closer to the
equator = warmer / further from the equator =
colder)….usually!

1. Which cities will have a
temperate climate?
2. Which cities are warm
year-round? What is this
zone of latitude called?
3. Which cities are in the
polar zone?
Topography - Elevation
• Elevation = height above sea level
• The higher the elevation of a region the
cooler the temperature becomes…further
