One lesson I taught to help my cuties understand relative temperature involved learning how mittens keep our hands warm. We completed this experiment chart together to help us with our thinking.
We answered the first section before I introduced our materials for our experiment. We used these crazy cute mittens and two thermometers to conduct our experiment.
Then a picked a helper to keep her hand in one mitten with the thermometer and hold the other mitten.
While my little helper stood at the front of the room being our experiment, the other students were heading to their tables to draw the experiment. We added their drawings to the chart.
After a few minutes, we checked the thermometers and learned that the mitten that had a hand in it was warmer. Then we completed our chart.
