Learners assess the factors which influence the sensation of being "cold" in a particular situation. They study the complexities in measuring temperature by reading and discussing the article "Beyond Brrr: The Elusive Science of Cold."

Finally, they reflect on the importance of accuracy in temperature measurement to the average person.
