Weather and climate events - Frequency, duration and impact

The download below can be used as a starter activity or homework research activity on rates and frequencies of weather and climate events. This exercise is aimed at key stage 3 students and is designed to highlight the fact that the duration of events can be very different from their frequency, or how often they occur.
