Thermometer Math

In this activity (during a measurement unit), the kiddos are asked to look at the pictures and color their thermometer according to what the temperature should be.

Ways to Use

  Usually our K munchkins don't really grasp the full spectrum of degrees and know that 80 is hot and 40 is cool, but we teach them that if the red is up high that's hot.... down low is cold.

  Of my more advanced students I photocopy a picture of a thermometer on the back and have them label it counting by 10's. Then we add these words where they would best fit: cold, cool, warm, and hot.
