A colorful "Math Card" provides a reading passage on the Fahrenheit and Celsius temperature scales. Instructions are given for converting from one to another. There are before, during, and after reading questions to answer either in writing or in a class discussion. Instructions for two different approaches for teaching this lesson plan are given to you as a teacher. One focuses on asking questions, while the other uses mental images. With each, there are further suggestions for differentiation. Use this as an introduction to temperature conversion.
Are literature and jazz dangerous as Jazz Master Paquito D'Rivera contends? To establish the cultural and historical context of Fahrenheit 451, class members read a short essay about the 1950s and listen to classic jazz artists.
Students investigate different temperature scales.  For this algebra/science lesson, students use a calculator to explore unit conversion and answer the question of why scientists use different temperature scales in science. 
In this temperature conversion instructional activity, students convert degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit. They answer four questions about conversions.
"It just takes a spark." The sparks that gave rise to Fahrenheit 451 are detailed in an audio biography of Ray Bradbury. After listening to Part I of the engaging narration, class groups read background essays and prepare presentations of what they have learned in the essays. 
In this temperature conversion worksheet, students use the formulas of converting Celsius to Fahrenheit and Fahrenheit to Celsius to calculate the temperature in given problems.
For this temperature conversion worksheet, 7th graders solve several fraction word problems by using the fraction formula that converts Celsius to Fahrenheit.
  Students work in stations that have pictures of thermometers, for the students to discuss the change and record the temperature.  In this temperature activity, students work on a worksheet telling the temperature on thermometers in Celsius and Fahrenheit.       
In this Fahrenheit 451 literature guide, young scholars examine and study 24 allusions and terms referenced by Ray Bradbury in part 1 of the novel.
Is a book "a loaded gun"? After completing Part One of Fahrenheit 451, individuals are asked to craft a letter to Captain Beatty in response to this charge and present their own ideas about books and education. In addition, class members examine the effects of the third person limited point of view.
Young scholars use the point-slope formula to determine the relationship between the Celsius and Fahrenheit scales of temperature. They use a graphing calculator to determine the slope of the line between two points in each scale.
Learners complete activities to measure temperature. In this temperature lesson plan, students read Geoffrey Groundhog Predicts the Weather and make a KWL chart about predicting weather. Learners discuss folklore about temperature and learn how to use a thermometer. Students work in small groups to complete a thermometer experiment, make a homemade thermometer, complete weather journal activities, and temperature conversions.
For this Kelvin temperature scale worksheet, high schoolers solve 6 problems using the equations for the conversion of Centigrade to Fahrenheit and Kelvin to Centigrade. They convert between Fahrenheit and Kelvins and Centigrade and Kelvins.
Students, after reading Fahrenheit 451, brainstorm inventions that could have been in the novel. They present their invention to the class and writing an expository essay about their creation.
In this vocabulary worksheet, learners generate definitions for words using sentence context. Worksheet includes 8 vocabulary words from part one of the novel. After deciding on definitions based on context, students look up words in the dictionary and write the definitions.
None of the activities or templates included in this resource directly address Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451. Instead, the materials can be used with any narrative. Included are templates for a reading schedule, chapter summaries, vocabulary lists, reading questions, story plot flow chart, and character map. Everything you need to track progress with an independent reading assignment.
After reading Captain Beatty's speech (pg. 54-63) in Fahrenheit 451, provide your class with these analysis questions. Six questions are included here, using Bloom's Taxonomy to focus on knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. 
Students explore the weather of different ecosystems with the TI calculator. In this math lesson, students graph temperatures in Fahrenheit and Celsius in order to analyze and differentiate between the two data.  They also look at the linear regression with the help of a TI calculator.
Learners convert between Celsius and Fahrenheit. In this geometry instructional activity, students perform conversion operations as they solve the equation for the desired variable. They apply this conversion to the real world as they discuss temperatures.
French language scholars examine French language websites to read about the weather for Francophone capital cities. They make weather predictions and compare them with actual weather reports. They design graphs of the mean temperature data and complete problem solving activities with Celsius/Fahrenheit temperature conversions. Finally, they present their finding to the class in a presentation.
