This lesson is part of a wider geography unit called Exploring Spain which is designed to teach KS2 children (Y4-6) about a contrasting European country.
The presentation first recaps the climate zones of the world (i.e. tropical, temperate & polar zones) and locates both Spain and the UK within these. It then looks in more detail at Spain’s climate zones and the climate of Madrid. Children are then encouraged to find clues about Madrid’s weather using a climate graph.
This lesson includes two activities:
Comprehension activity with extension:
Children interpret climate graphs for Madrid and London and compare the climates of both cities.
Children create their own climate graph for Madrid using Excel.
