Breezy, Chilly, or Freezing?

Students 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." Students then script "polite conversations" with scientific detail about particular aspects of feeling "cold." Finally, they reflect on the importance of accuracy in temperature measurement to the average person.
