Part 5 - Climograph Your tasks today… 1.Identify what is shown on a climograph. 2.Create a climograph for the capital city of your island country.

Climographs Definition  Climographs are a graphic representation of the climate in a given area. 5 Themes of Geography – Place –What is it like there? –You could use a climograph to tell you

Hilo, Hawaii – Tropical Wet Climographs include… 1.a line graph measuring average temperature and… 2.a bar graph measuring average rainfall for each month. Rainfall Temperature

Las Vegas Climograph - Desert Task  complete the questions below in your notebook… 1.How are the climates of Houston and Las Vegas different? 2.How do you know?

Houston – Humid Subtropical Las Vegas - Desert Task  complete the questions below in your notebook… 1.How are the climates of Houston and Las Vegas different? 2.How do you know?

Climograph Help Tips 1.Use the key 2.Line graph is always temperature (warm/cold = line, 4 X 4) 3.Bar graph is always precipitation (wet = bar, 3 X 3) 4.Can a place have -10 precipitation? Can a place have - 10 for temperature? Task  Complete the questions below in your notebook… 1.How would a farmer use a climograph? 2.How would a tourist use a climograph? 3.What is another profession in which people would find a climograph useful?

Making Your Climograph Complete each of the following steps… 1.Using your climate map that you created, determine the climate zone of your capital. 2.Use p. 60-63 to record the characteristics of your capital’s climate in your notebook. (No graphing yet.) 3.Create your climograph. Use p. 64 to help you. -Don’t forget your key -Remember, which is the line graph? Which is the bar graph?
