Climate Zones Sixth Grade Science
Climate- the average weather conditions for an area over a long period of time
There are many different climates on Earth, but scientists group these different climates into zones.
Climate Zones Polar Zones Tropical Zones Temperate Zones
Polar Zones Found at Earth’s north and south poles Cold temperatures
Tropical Zones Found near the equator, where light and heat from the sun is most concentrated Hot temperatures
Temperate Zones Found between polar and tropical zones Mild temperatures
What zone are we located? How do you know? (other than the map!)
Is there a difference?. Climate Vs. Weather Climate Long-term weather patterns of an area Weather Current state of the troposphere Short term variations.

Our planet is divided in five climate zones according to temperature Cool climate zone Temperate zone Hot climate zone.
CLIMATE AND WEATHER. CLIMATES OF THE WORLD A climate is a long-term pattern of air temperatures and precipitation. Earth has 3 major climate zones on.
CLIMATE WHAT IN FLUENCES the Climate of a region?
Climate Meteorology. Factors Affecting Climate Climate includes not only the average weather conditions of an area, but also any variations from those.
Warm-Up Do Now: Write you homework in your planner. HOMEWORK: write at least a half page story that includes at least 3 of the vocabulary. QUIZ TOMORROW!
Major Climate Zones Planet Earth can be divided into three basic climate zones: Tropical Temperate Polar.
Climate Climatology is the study of Earth’s climate and factors affecting it Climate describes long term variations in weather (30+ years)
