Activity 2: Formative Assessment
The Climate Patterns table shows the annual average temperature for the coldest and warmest months for five cities in the United States.
Rule: Increasing latitude has the effect of decreasing temperatures on Earth. This effect is there if you increase latitude north or south.
Read the rule and study the information in the table. Then write a paragraph that states why the rule and table are in agreement, or why they disagree.
|Coldest month||10||22||38||42||69 (Jan)|
