Of course it's not called Greenland by everybody: Kalaallit Nunaat...
It is an amazing place, and the Wikipedia article has some very useful information.
There is a GREENLAND statistics site here.
Here are some questions for this section of the Pre-Release booklet.
The focus is a place called NUUK. This is also known as Godthab.
Here is the climate information for NUUK.
Why not go here on HOLIDAY. There are quite a few YOU TUBE videos too...
Use this in relation to the work in the booklet...
|Nuuk||-4.4||-4.5||-4.8||-0.8||3.5||7.7||10.6||9.9||6.3||1.7||-1.0||-3.3||1.74||Mean Daily High|
|-10.1||-10.6||-10.6||-6.1||-1.5||1.3||3.8||3.8||1.6||-2.5||-5.8||-8.7||-3.89||Mean Daily Low|
Here are the questions:
1. What is the precipitation in Nuuk in June ? (1)
2. What is the temperature range in Nuuk ? (2) (for this you need to subtract the lowest temperature from the highest - don't forget that there may be some negative values involved here...)
3. List 6 reasons why tourists might visit Greenland.
4. What makes Greenland an extreme environment ?
5. How might Greenland change in the future ?
