Welcome to the Extreme Environments unit!
Your environment means everything around you. The weather, the landscape, and the types of plants and animals that live there are all part of your environment. Some places on earth have extreme environments—places that are incredibly hot or cold, or that have intense storms. These extremes can affect life dramatically!

- how dose climate affect life?(7 votes)
- Your climate can tell a lot of things about where you live, because organisms adapt to their surroundings. The easiest example of this is camouflage. If you take any animal living on ice caps, it'll probably be white. If you do the same for an animal in the desert, it'll probably be sand-colored.
For people, the climate can affect how you dress, what sort of food you eat, your main income source, and a whole bunch of things like that.(9 votes)
