Helping Temperature Make Sense
Not much to say about this one; making it is pretty self explanatory. I made it, though, to try and help my students make sense of temperatures. Using it, they can see which degrees are warm, cool, cold, or hot. I used to be amazed that I’d tell them recess temps were in the 40’s/30’s/50’s… and might require a jacket/would require a jacket/ probably would not need a jacket…, and they’d stare at me like I spoke a different language. “Cool, cold, warm” they can wrap their minds around. 30 degrees F is a bit less familiar, and thus, this poster helps.
