MONDAY – Warm up: Middle East – AKA Southwest Asia.

Activity –¬†Collaborate as a group to create a slide presentation that explains the five major influences on climate. Make sure each group member can explain, in detail, HOW and WHY each of the five factors influences climate. Use the classroom text book pp. 41-49 and the article linked in the Google Classroom stream, and the videos linked below BEFORE you attempt any outside Google searches.

Have one group member create the Google Slide presentation and share it with the other members of the group. Put the names of all group members on the title slide and add individual names to the slides you work on. But remember – each member of the group must be able to explain ANY of the five factors.

Slide presentations must be complete by Monday, April 8th.
