Dear Students,
As discussed in class today, you have to mark specific countries which fall under the different climatic zones on the world map provided to you. The different climatic conditions are mentioned below:
Polar – very cold and dry all year
Temperate – cold winters and mild summers
Arid – dry, hot all year
Tropical – hot and wet all year
Mediterranean – mild winters, dry hot summers
Mountains (tundra) very cold all year
You are free to mark whichever country you feel like. You may use different colours to mark the different regions. Once you have marked the countries, you are required to write a short paragraph for each country, justifying your choice. For this, you will need to do research on the countries which have these climates. You have to repeat this exercise on the Indian map as well.

Paste the map in your notebook such that both maps are visible. I will be taking your notes for correction tomorrow so I highly urge you to complete the task properly.

Also, as discussed, please locate Surat on Google Maps, write down the coordinates and express them in decimal points.
Looking forward to seeing your notes tomorrow.
Regards
Abizer Shaikhmahmud

Details for IH Exhibition

Details for IH Exhibition

Dear Students,

As discussed in class today, we will be organizing an exhibition on the 27th of March on behalf of the Integrated Humanities Team. For the exhibition, we will be representing different biomes of the environment. The objective of this exhibition is to help improve your understanding of biomes and its relationship with human beings.

Here are some guidelines which we need to follow in order to execute the planned exhibition successfully:

  1. Where is your country or region in the world? 
  2. What is the climate like? Include the relevant data and a graph.
  3. What does the natural environment look like? What are the features of ecosystems in this area? What is the flora and fauna? How are they interdependent? Include diagrams and/or images.
  4. Provide two examples of human impact on the area, for example, mining, farming, tourism, climate change.
  5. Write a reflection on some of the opportunities and threats facing the natural environment in this area.

These guiding questions shall be the basis of our chosen biome (which in our case is Savannah Grasslands). Based on the groups which you have been divided into, you have to select any one of these guiding questions and work upon it.

The final reflection which you will be writing will be taken as your summative assessment. So let us give it our best efforts and come out with the best biome anybody has ever seen.

Please write to me in case of any query.

Regards

Abizer Shaikhmahmud
