Geography - Climate vs Weather

HOME LEARNING - SUMMER TERM WEEK 9

WEATHER vs CLIMATE

 

This week we are going global and local at the same time, looking to understand the difference between weather and climate.

 

We always tend to say the wrong thing when it comes to weather vs climate. "The weather in Wales is always wet", "The weather in Dubai is always hot", "The weather in the Himalaya is always snowing" etc... But are we talking about the right thing? Are we talking about 'weather' or 'climate' ... and what's the difference?

 

Time to find out.

 

CLICK ON THE YOUTUBE + WEBSITE LINKS BELOW to learn about the differences between weather and climate.
