Lesson 6: Climate and Plant Growth

Overview

Students review the climatic factors that influence plant growth and review the concept of growing seasons. They read and interpret climographs and characterize the climates of multiple biomes. They also discuss how plant growing seasons are limited by different factors in each biome.

Learning Objectives

Students will be able to:

  • Explain how the climatic variables temperature and precipitation determine growing seasons.
  • Read and interpret climographs and match them to appropriate biomes.
  • Discuss the factors that limit growing seasons in different biomes.
