Constructing Climatograms
Graphing Practice Worksheets

The two biggest abiotic factors that determine an ecosystem are temperature and precipitation. Climatographs take each of these data and combine them in a way that can help identify what kind of ecosystem is present. Monthly average precipitation levels make a bar graph, while the monthly average temperature levels make a line graph. Together, they produce a pattern that can identify what type of ecosystem is present, any seasons it has, and what hemisphere it is located in.

There are three sets of worksheets for this activity -- each covers a different type of biome: grassland, desert, and forest.

Essential concepts:Biomes, ecosystems, temperature, precipitation, climate, seasons, climatographs.
