**How to Read a Thermometer**

2
**A thermometer is an instrument that is used to measure temperature.**

3
**The temperature of something tells us how hot or cold something is.**

4
**Temperature is measured in degrees.**

5
**is the symbol for degrees.**

100 “100 Degrees”

6
**Temperature is measured on two scales: Celsius and Fahrenheit.**

37 C 98.6 F

7
**“C” is the symbol for the Celsius scale.**

8
Let’s count by 2’s… 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12…

9
**The lines on most thermometers count by two’s.**

102 100 98 96 94 92 90

10
**What is the temperature on this thermometer?**

C 100 96 94 92 90 88 C “98 degrees Celsius”

11
Try this one. C 90 88 84 82 oC 80 78 76 “86 degrees Celcius”

12
**Normal body temperature is 98.6 oF.**

This means it is between 98 and 99 degrees.

13
98.6 F This is a decimal point.

14
**The temperature is “98 point 6” degrees Fahrenheit.**

96 97 98 99 98.6 oF The temperature is “98 point 6” degrees Fahrenheit.

15
**The temperature is “99 point 8” degrees Fahrenheit.**

97 98 99 100 99.8 oF The temperature is “99 point 8” degrees Fahrenheit.

16
**Now let’s try it with Celsius**

17
**What is the temperature?**

99 100 101 102 What is the temperature? 101.2 oC

18
Try this one. 101 102 103 100 oC

19
**If the temperature is below freezing, it will be a negative temperature.**

-8 oC Remember… Below zero, you count backwards!

20
Try this one... -5 oC
