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.

Easiy to teach

I love these lesson plans!!! They are so easy to follow. I am homeschooling this year because of COVID and I was completely lost when it came to teaching and how to. These lesson plans are so easy to follow. They give some nice vocab definitions. The definitions are very easy to explain to the kids and they are easy for them to follow. I highly recommend these lesson plans

I have found both the organization and details provided in these lessons to be of exception quality. There is a lot of free and paid material online but after hours of research, I was thrilled to come across Clarendon learning. Nothing short of a gem and I love the worksheets. You can easily gauge if your child understood the material covered.

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.
