Climatographs

You are assigned one of the eight data sets below. Construct a climatograph based on this
data set, and determine where in the world this data came from. The possible choices are:

1.   Antofagasta, Chile (23°26'S, 70°26'W)
2.   Arkhangelsk, Russia (64°34N, 40°31E)
3.   Fort Smith, NWT, Canada (60°01'N, 111°57'W)
4.   Iquitos, Peru (03°45'S, 073°15'W)
5.   Miami, Florida (25°48'N, 080°18'W)
6.   Minneapolis, Minnesota (44°52’N, 093°13’W)
7.   Moline, Illinois (41°27'N, 090°30'W)
8.   Yakutsk, Russia (62°10'N, 129°51E)

Cut out the map at the bottom of this page, tape it into your journal, and mark the location
of each city.

Take the data set you have been assigned below and construct a climatograph. Remember,
precipitation is a bar graph and temperature is a line graph. Which city do you think
tape this climatograph into your journal.
