Place a thermometer outside a window, or just outside a doorway that is close to your classroom. Each day, have a student check the temperature, after they understand how to read a thermometer.

To analyze temperatures, do the following activities with students:

Create a chart students can fill in each day with the day’s temperature.

After a certain number of days (20 to 30 maybe), graph the temperatures. If there are enough of the same temperatures, construct a line plot graph with them.

Describe what it feels like outside when the temperatures are in this range, and estimate what they may be in a different season.

Find the highest temperature for the entire 2 weeks.
Find the lowest temperature for the entire 2 weeks.
Find the average temperature.
