Key Concepts, Skills and Understandings

Students record and interpret information about weather patterns and draw conclusions about how weather contributes to climate. They use their knowledge of weather to predict what the weather would be like in different climate zones. They identify three different climate zones in Australia – Tropical, Temperate, Desert and identify places within the zones. Students use an image to identify the effect of landforms on climate. The geographical tools included in this lesson are mapping, graphs and statistics, and visual representation.
