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.

To go with this there is a peer assessment sheet to indicate what went well and what would be even better.
