In this lesson students will use all their knowledge of weather systems, and use a variety of satellite maps of Northwestern Europe to predict the weather for the next day. Students will then go on to use satellite images to describe the weather of Northwestern Europe and explain what has caused this weather and what conditions would be expected as a result of what is shown on the satellite images.
Share the learning outcomes of the lesson.
Students will use atlases to label the countries on a map of Northwestern Europe.
Students look at the climate data for Northwestern Europe. Students analyse the data, identifying the hottest, wettest, driest countries. Students use isobar maps for Northwestern Europe to predict the weather for the following day.
Students work in pairs and discuss how the location of the jet stream will cause different types of extreme weather in the UK.
Students demonstrate their learning by completing an exam question.
