Severe Weather Work for S3 Geography

Make a poster or powerpoint presentation detailing how we get our weather in the UK. You should use information from your notes jotter and BBC Bitesize online. (Search for BBC Bitesize then click- National 5- Physical Environments- Weather).

You must include:

  • A map of the UK with the 5 main air masses drawn on it
  • A description of the different weather conditions the UK receives from different air masses in summer and winter
  • Written information and diagrams which show the effects of latitude, relief, aspect and distance from the sea on local weather conditions

Your work should be well presented and colourful.
