This lesson is part of Mountain Environments, a Geography unit designed for students in upper KS2 (Y4-6).
First the presentation looks at features of a mountain climate including lower temperatures and increased rainfall. It then focuses in more detail on the climate of Mount Everest.
There are two activities:
Interpreting climate graphs
In this activity students look at and answer questions about temperature graphs for both the summit and base camp of Mount Everest. It is differentiated two ways:
Easier – Students answer questions about temperature graphs for Mount Everest (suitable for Year 4 and 5).
Harder – Students answer questions about temperature graphs for Mount Everest (suitable for Year 6).
Creating a climate graph in Excel
In this ICT activity, students create their own climate graph, including temperature and rainfall, for the summit of Mount Everest using Microsoft Excel.
