?_Geography Temperature Line Graphs

1. Click on the Environment Canada link.

2. On the map of Canada, click on "Northwest Territories". (Careful: click

    on the Territory, and not on the label!)

3. On the map of NWT, click on "Yellowknife" .

4. Record the forecasted high and low temperatures for today, and for each

    of the next four days. Click here to download a worksheet on which to

    collect your data.

5. On the navigation bar at the top of the page, click on "Weather" to go

    back to the map of Canada.

6. Click on "Sachs Harbour" , and then record the forecasted high and low

    temperatures for the next four days.

7. Use the information you recorded to create a line graph. Mark the dates of

    the days you recorded high and low temperatures for along the bottom of

    the graph. Along the left side of the graph, mark temperatures (for

    example, from 0 C to 20 C). The temperatures you mark should

    include all of the high and low temperatures you recorded for both cities.

8. Start by marking all of the high temperatures for Yellowknife with a dot.

    Then connect these dots with a solid line (use a coloured pencil). Then

   mark the low temperatures with dots and use a broken line of the same

   colour to connect them.
