Educational Description: 
The objectives of this geography learning unit are: - To describe the daily variance of temperature in different sites of the earth, based on graphs.
- To relate the daily variance of temperature with the rotational movement of the earth.
- To relate the sun’s rays incidence angle to the thickness of atmosphere to trespass as well as to the surface of incidence
- To describe the annual temperature variation in places of the northern and Southern hemispheres.
- To relate the annual variation of temperature to the translational movement of the earth, emphasizing the June and December solstices as well as the March and September equinoxes.
- To understand the relation between the temperature variation and the latitude of a given place
This unit is connected to others related to climate.
Will be addressed in 3 lessons
Development of Skills: 
Usage of different language media as well as to observe and analyse geographic information;
Autonomous performance of activities, such as simulations, thus using geographical knowledge;
Collaboration with peers, thus allowing the debate on the proposed activities, as a way to understand the geographical phenomena under study.
There will be plenty opportunity for pair work, particularly to debate results the students have achieved while simulating or answering to the quizzes.
