Our Temperature lesson plan introduces students to temperature including how to measure it, the measurement units used, how it can change over time and more. During this lesson, students are asked to participate in an activity in which students go from room to room at school and record the temperature in each room the class visits, also using words to describe how the temperature feels. Students are also asked to read paper thermometers and write the shown measured temperature in order to demonstrate their ability to read a thermometer properly.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define temperature and thermometer, distinguish between Fahrenheit and Celsius, and identify common uses for measuring temperature.
