-You understand what influence the latitude has on climates.

-You can explain why vegetation differs between climates.

What is 'weather'?

Slide 8 - Mind map

Slide 9 - Slide

Terms we are going to use
Precipitation = rain/snow/drizzle

Equator = line that divides the earth in
the Northern hemisphere and

Latitude = the distance from the equator

Slide 10 - Slide

Tropical rainforest
- Always above 18 degrees
- Lots of precipitation (=rain) (average 2000 mm a year)
- Close to the equator (low latitude)
- There are no seasons (spring, summer, autumn, winter)
- Lots of vegetation (plantgrowth)

Veel plantengroei, dit komt door de hoeveelheid neerslag die er valt.

Slide 11 - Slide

Savanna climate
- Dry and wet season 
- Less precipitation (rain-saison):  1000-1500mm per jaar
- Vegetation: grasses and some trees 
- Wildlife: Zebras, Lions etc
- Low latitude
Veel dieren, omdat het er genoeg geregend en de temperatuur altijd hoog is.

Slide 12 - Slide

Steppe climate
- Vegetation: some grasses or bushes, no trees
- little precipitation: 200-500mm a year
- Low latitude
Climate with high temperatures and little precipitation that
limits vegetation to grass. 

Slide 13 - Slide

Desert Climate
- Little precipitation (less than 200mm a year) 
- Almost no vegetation
- Low latitude

Climate with usually high temperatures and nearly no

Slide 14 - Slide

Savanna climate
Steppe climate
Tropical climate
Desert climate

Slide 15 - Drag question

Low latitude
low latitude
high latitude
high latitude

Slide 16 - Drag question

Temperate sea climate 
- Average because it is not too cold or warm, not too dry or wet. 
- this is due to the sea

- High latitude

Slide 17 - Slide

Continental climate
  • Warm summers, cold winters
  • Example: Russia
  • High latitude

Slide 18 - Slide

Tundra climate

  • It is always cold here, trees can no longer grow
  • High latitude

Het is hier erg koud, waardoor er geen bomen groeien.

Slide 19 - Slide

Why does the continental climate only exist on the northern hemisphere?

Slide 20 - Open question

Polar climate 
  • Can be found where it is close to freezing point all year around
  • at high latitude 
  • or in high mountain ranges
