Climate overview presentation

Climate overview presentation

Explaining the difference between weather and climate. This is aimed at year 7, or an introductory lesson into climate. I don't feel this is finished, and I will be updating it in the very near future, but feel free to use it as a starting point for a lesson. As always, this should be just a part of a well planned lesson.
