For Geography today, I would like you to focus on learning about Weather and Climate.


Weather is a description of what the conditions are like in a particular place. For example, it could be:

  • hot or cold
  • wet or dry
  • windy or calm
  • stormy, with thunder and lightning.



What is climate?

Climate is a description of the average weather conditions in a certain place for the past 30 or so years.

Different areas of the world have different climates.

Climate is influenced by lots of different things, including:

  • how near or far it is from the Equator
  • how near or far it is from the sea
  • how high or low the ground is
  • its position on a continent
