A Living Depression (Pupils will need to be provided with a satellite image or a diagram of a depression)

Look at satellite image you have been given. Onto the map the warm and cold fronts of a depression have been marked. Think carefully about the weather conditions that the depression will bring and how they will change over time.

1) In pairs consider the following statements. Using your knowledge about how the weather conditions will be changing label onto your satellite image where you think they will be happening.

2) Choose 4 of these and explain in as much detail as you can why you have placed it where you have.

3) Now think of 4 more statements to be placed and swap with another pair.
