Lesson to get pupils to understand the weather associated with the passage of a depression. Involves pupils putting together a pop up diagram to show what the depression would like on a weather map, in cross section and what weather would be experienced as the depression passes over Britain. At the end of the lesson to test understanding there are some questions asking pupils to describe the weather at certain locations. To go with this there is a peer assessment sheet to indicate what went well and what would be even better.
