Investigating Spain’s weather and climate

This lesson is part of Exploring Spain, a Geography unit designed for upper KS2 students (Y4-6), but can also be taught as a stand alone lesson.

The presentation first recaps the climate zones of the world (i.e. tropical, temperate & polar zones) and locates Spain within these.

It then looks in more detail at Spain’s climate zones and the climate of Madrid. Students are then encouraged to find clues about Madrid’s weather using a climate graph.

This lesson includes two activities:

Comprehension activity with extension:
Students interpret climate graphs for Madrid and London and compare the climates of both cities.

ICT activity:
Students create their own climate graph for Madrid using Microsoft Excel.
