1 1-3: The Ups & Downs of Thermometers Why do you think the liquid in a thermometer moves up and down when it is heated & cooled?Within your groups, make a whiteboard with a BIG representation & brief explanation of how you think this happensLet’s all try to explain it in hot water so we’re all on the same pageDon’t give up if you don’t know the answer right away….it’s part of the learning process!!!Use your new knowledge of particle motion and temperatureMake your illustrations HUGE so the entire class can see and label things as necessary
2 Visualizing this process with particles thermometer at the particle level
3 What about this???How is it possible that both thermometers can be recording the exact same temperature but the liquids inside are at different levels????
