Comparing the weather of St Lucia and the UK - KS2

This resource is designed for KS2 children. It is part of a wider unit called Exploring St Lucia which is designed to teach children about a contrasting non-European country.

First the presentation introduces children to the tropical climate zone (dry and wet seasons) and its associated weather (i.e. high temperatures and high rainfall). It compares this with temperate climates such as that of the UK. Children are also encouraged to interpret data from a climate graph for St Lucia. Finally, other aspects of a tropical climate are covered including tropical storms and hurricanes.

The accompanying differentiated true/false activity helps children to recap what they have learned about the climates of St Lucia and the UK. There is also an extension activity.

If you like this lesson, please review it. I will happily send you a free resource of your choice in return for a review or useful suggestions/feedback. Contact me at
