You’ll find out about the system scientists use to classify climates, and how factors like ocean currents and geographical features play major roles! There’s information about the hot desert climate of the Sahara, the temperate climates found around the Mediterranean Sea, and the polar climates of Alaska and northern Russia! Whether your area experiences snowstorms, sandstorms, or monsoons, there’s a lot here that you can learn from!
