Part A Climatograph (18 marks)
You have learned that temperature and precipitation are two biotic factors that influence the climate and types of plants and animals in a biome. You have also learned that you can use climatographs to compare the climates of different biomes.
In this activity, you will practice interpreting and graphing climatographs. Then you will make an inference about which biomes are represented by the climatographs.
Question.
• How can you use the information in climatographs to infer which biomes are represented?
Materials: pencil, ruler, blue & red pencil crayons.
Procedure.

Part 1. Analyze a Climatograph (previous page) (3 marks).
a) What information is represented on the left-hand vertical y-axis?
______________________________________________
b) What information is represented by the letters (could be numbers 1 to 12)?
__________________________________
c) What are the units of measurement for precipitation? _________________
d) What are the units of measurement for temperature? _________________
e) What is the total amount of precipitation in July? __________________
f) What is the average temperature in December? ___________________
Part 2: Graph a Climatograph. (8 marks)

3. On the graph paper, mark 12 intervals on the horizontal axis. Label each interval with the first letter of the month, starting with "J" for January. (1 mark)
4. On the left vertical axis, mark 10 intervals beginning at 0 and extending to 100. Each interval has a value of 10. Label this axis "Average Precipitation (mm)". (1 mark)
5. Draw a second vertical axis for temperature on the right. On this axis, mark seven intervals beginning with -10 ˚C and extending to 25˚C. Label this axis "Average Temperature (˚C)". (1 mark)
6. Present the data for each month's average precipitation as a bar graph. Use a blue pencil to shade in the bar graph. (2 marks)
7. Enter the data for each month's average temperature in the middle of the space allocated for that month. Use a red pencil to draw a curve between the points. (2 marks)
8. Add the title "Climatograph B." (1 mark) Cli__________________________________

*NOTE: Climatograph B MUST be completed in order for Part 3, Analysis and Conclusion to be completed.
Part 3: Compare Climatographs and Make an Inference. (4 marks)
9. Compare Climatograph A to Climatograph B.
a) How do the monthly precipitation patterns in the two climatographs compare?
