Climate ACTIVITY
For your group’s assigned continent
1. Select 2 climate regions
2. Identify the factors that determine
the climate for the 2 climate regions
Sea-Level Activity
Sea-level Activity Directions
1. As a group study the maps, choose several
problems to address, discuss, make decisions
and record reasoning.
2. Select a group member to present to class
ABATEMENT: fix the problem or make it less of a
problem
ACCOMMODATION: learn to live with the problem
and not try to change it
PREVENTION: work to prevent the problem from
happening.
