Get out your climate/vegetation cards.
Use your world climate map to help you separate the types of
climates based on location in high, mid, low or anywhere
categories. Make four stacks , one for high, one for mid, one
for low and one for anywhere!
For example: Tropical wet and dry is found only in the …..
Please mark each card according to latitude.
One of the words I left out in the
LEMPOSA notes was……..
What climate factor could you infer

*Remember LEMPOSA are factors that affect

your reference material if you need to. The correct answer gets
the point, please put a tally mark at the top of your page each
time you score it is possible that you BOTH get the point.
Make up a definition for “permafrost bog”
with your partner.
