In this Xpeditions lesson, students describe and compare how weather affects human activity in two places on opposite sides of the world. Students first identify the seasons and weather in their community and how human activities are affected by weather. They then cross the globe and compare how the weather of northern Africa impacts human activities there. Students look for a connection between the two environments and conclude that although the weather and activities may be very different in each place, the impact of weather on human activities is a common thread in human communities all over the world.
