80 Standardized Test Practice 1 Use the climograph below and your knowledge of geography to answer the question on the following slide.

81 Standardized Test Practice 2 1.Based on the information shown in the climograph, which statement about the months of April and November is accurate? A.The average temperature and amount of rainfall are about the same. B.It is hotter and drier in November. C.The average temperature is about the same, but it is wetter in November. D.The amount of rainfall is about the same, but it is hotter in November. Click the mouse button or press the Space Bar to display the answer. Test-Taking Tip Study the information shown on the climograph for average temperature and monthly precipitation. Then look carefully at the data for the months of April and November. Compare the amount of precipitation for the two months. As a result, you will be able to eliminate some of the statements.

82 GeoFact 1 Many nonvolcanic Caribbean islands are partially or completely composed of coral, the hard outer skeletons of tiny marine animals. The world’s second-longest coral reef–a 75-mile (121km) stretch popular with tourists and ecologists–lies off the coast of Belize in Central America.

83 Interdisciplinary Connection 2 Biology There are many distinct varieties of ants in the Amazon rain forest. One variety, army ants, of which there are about 200 species, does not build permanent nests. Millions of them travel together in columns at speeds of up to 65 feet (20 m) per hour. A swarm can destroy crops as well as small animals.

84 Skill Builder 1 Identifying cause-and-effect relationships involves considering how and why an event occurred. A cause is the action or situation that leads to the event. An effect is the result or consequence of an action or situation. Identifying Cause-and-Effect Relationships

85 Skill Builder 2 Learning the Skill Cause-and-effect relationships may be simple or complex. Several causes can produce a single effect. For example, a forest fire may be caused by a series of events or conditions. Hot weather and lack of rain make grass and wood dry and flammable. The day the fire started might have been windy, and the wind might have blown sparks from a camper’s fire into some dry grass. Identifying Cause-and-Effect Relationships

86 Skill Builder 3 Similarly, one event can produce several effects. A large forest fire can destroy animal habitats. It can also suddenly reduce plant cover, making the land more susceptible to erosion from wind and rain. A large fire can also be expensive to fight and damaging to homes and businesses, harming the economy of an entire region.  Learning the Skill Click the mouse button or press the Space Bar to display the information. Sometimes one event causes several other events in a chain reaction. A traffic accident on a highway may cause another accident, which causes another accident, and so on. Strings of causal relationships are called cause-and-effect chains. Identifying Cause-and-Effect Relationships

87 Skill Builder 4 Follow these steps to identify cause-and-effect relationships:  Ask questions about why events occur.  Identify the outcomes of events.  Look for clues that indicate a cause-and-effect relationship. Words and phrases such as because, as a result of, brought about, as a consequence, therefore, and thus can help you identify cause-and-effect relationships. Learning the Skill Click the mouse button or press the Space Bar to display the information. Identifying Cause-and-Effect Relationships

88 Skill Builder 5 Practicing the Skill Identify one cause and one effect associated with each of the events or conditions listed below. 1.The 1999 earthquake in Colombia 2.The formation of several Caribbean islands cause: location along the Ring of Fire makes region prone to earthquakes effect: many people left homeless cause: islands part of a chain of volcanic mountains effect: some islands have active volcanoes that can harm inhabitants Click the mouse button or press the Space Bar to display possible answers.
