Due to its geographical location, the weather in the Midwest is often severe. The winters are long and frigid, and the summers are hot and humid. Blizzards and tornadoes occur frequently in the Midwest. For this activity, students will create a 3 cell spider map that illustrates the climate and weather of the Midwest. Spider maps are an excellent tool to help students organize facts in a systematic and visual manner. To differentiate, teachers could encourage students to complete more than 3 cells.
