Temperature – Introduction
Welcome to our exciting journey into understanding temperature! Temperature is something we experience every day, whether it's feeling the warmth of the sun or noticing how chilly it gets in the evening. Maybe you have been on holiday to a hot country where the temperature was high or to a cold country where the temperature was low. But what exactly is temperature, and how do we measure it? In this text, we'll explore temperature in degrees Celsius (°C), and learn how higher readings mean warmer conditions, while lower ones indicate colder temperatures. We'll also understand how to read a thermometer accurately.
Understanding Temperature – Definition
Temperature is a measure of how hot or cold something is. It is measured in degrees Celsius (°C).
Remember, a higher temperature reading means that it's warmer, and a lower reading indicates that it's colder. Understanding how to read a thermometer is an important skill so we know what the temperature is.
Temperature – Example
Let's imagine it's a sunny day, and you want to find out the temperature. You take a thermometer and see that the line is at the number 25. This means it's 25 degrees Celsius outside, which is quite warm! It is likely to be summer.
