Make Your Own Temperature Scale
Differentiate between temperature and thermal energy. Your class will build a thermometer using simple materials and develop their own scale for measuring temperature. Discuss with your class and consider why engineers need to understand the properties of thermal energy.
3rd - 5th Technology & Engineering
Telling the Temperature
Young meteorologists keep track of the daily high temperatures for five consecutive days. They utilize a worksheet embedded in the plan to create a bar graph showing each of the daily temperatures. This worksheet could almost be considered a lesson plan; it's very good!
2nd - 3rd Science
Can Humans Really Feel Temperature?
Explore thermal energy with this short episode. Jiggling molecules and hand-drawn animation help to explain that just because something has a lot of thermal energy, it doesn't necessarily feel hot to the touch. This is an ideal addition to your middle school physical science curriculum when covering the different forms of energy.

Using Vegetation, Precipitation, and Surface Temperature to Study Climate Zones
Using NASA's Live Access Server, earth scientists compare the temperature, precipitation, and normalized difference vegetation index for four different locations. They use the data to identify the climate zone of each location using the Koppen climate classification system.
6th - 12th Science
My Weather Station
A printable weather station that will blow you away, this includes tools that little meteorologists can use to display their observations of daily weather conditions. There is a gauge where they can slide a pointer to show the precipitation, a general thermometer where they designate observations of the air temperature, a slider to show wind conditions, and two spaces for them to enter other descriptive words.
K - 3rd Science
Temperature Profile above the South Pole
Collecting and understanding data is a big part of understanding the world and how it changes. To better grasp what temperatures are changing and how they affect global populations, learners create a graph based on the date provided. They conduct a graphic analysis to see how temperatures in the troposphere are decreasing while temperatures in the stratosphere are increasing.
5th - 8th Science CCSS: Adaptable
Students determine the validity of Charles' Law. In this Charles' Law lesson plan, students measure the volumes of a gas at two different temperatures. They determine the volume at a high temperature and predict using Charles' Law what the volume of the same gas should be at a lower temperature.
9th - 12th Science
Thermal Physics The Basics: Heat, Temperature, and Expansion
Something we are so familiar with can be at the same time so mysterious! Ignite your physics learners' understanding of heat with this PowerPoint. By viewing this presentation, aided by your explanation, they will be able to relate heat and temperature, calculate specific heat, and describe thermal expansion.
9th - Higher Ed Science
Changing Planet: Rising Ocean Temperatures - Rising Sea Levels
As an anticipatory set, young environmental technicians watch a video about how ocean temperatures seem to be changing along with the global climate. They perform a laboratory demonstration with the purpose of observing what happens to water as it warms.
5th - 9th Science
In this calorimetry worksheet, high schoolers complete 30 problems. They calculate the change in heat of a system given the mass and the change in temperature of the system. Students also find the final temperature of a reaction given the masses and temperature change in the system.
9th - 12th Science
Feeling the Heat
Pupils record temperatures at different locations around campus. They examine the results and draw conclusions about how materials and colors affect the amount of heat produced. They also analyze Los Angeles' temperature records over a 100-year span and participate in a human bar graph of the data.
