Weather vs. Climate

WvC

Summary:
Weather and climate are two different things. And it’s an important difference. While weather includes the day-to-day fluctuations in temperature, wind, clouds, and precipitation, climate is more like the long-term average. For example, we all know that the average weather in Marshfield, Massachusetts is quite different from that of the Sahara desert. Today, students completed a WebQuest that helped them investigate weather vs. climate. It covered the different types of climate, mapped climate patterns across the Earth, and even explained why so many Pilgrims died during their first winter in the new world.
