How to Read a Thermometer for Kids

I noticed with my youngest that it can be a little challenging to read a thermometer for two reasons.

  1. In most curriculums, it is brushed over quickly.  The kids practice telling time, counting money, reading a calendar and measuring with a ruler, but identifying the temperature on a thermometer isn’t top priority.
  2. Thermometers vary, but many only have a few actual number identified and use marks to identify the rest.  Some of these marks are for every degree, but the most popular format is a mark for every two degrees Fahrenheit.
