In our Temperature lesson plan, students learn how to measure temperature, the proper measurement units, how and why it changes over time, and more. Students practice reading temperatures using both Celcius and Fahrenheit.


Our Temperature lesson plan introduces students to temperature including how to measure it, the measurement units used, how it can change over time and more. During this lesson, students are asked to participate in an activity in which students go from room to room at school and record the temperature in each room the class visits, also using words to describe how the temperature feels. Students are also asked to read paper thermometers and write the shown measured temperature in order to demonstrate their ability to read a thermometer properly.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define temperature and thermometer, distinguish between Fahrenheit and Celsius, and identify common uses for measuring temperature.

Great Information on Temperature

I used the intro activities and the magazine activity to teach my 1st graders about temperature. While some of the activities were beyond their learning, it would be perfect for 3rd graders, and the activities are geared toward 1st-3rd. Great lesson overall with a good progression.

Great Resource

I loved the temperature bundle provided by this website. It provides great resources to teach the lesson and gives step by step instructions for person who is unsure about how to introduce or present the topic.
