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.
- 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.
- 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.
