This week P5 have been learning about negative numbers.  We have ordered numbers, identified highest and lowest numbers and found out the difference between a negative and a positive number.  Today we learnt about negative numbers in a temperature context and used a thermometer to measure the temperature, in degrees Celsius, inside and outside the classroom.

Last night I downloaded a thermometer app on my phone which measured Drumnadrochit at 1.1 degrees but I’m not sure that this was accurate or not; Google informed me that it was 4 degrees….perhaps you could help measure the temperature this evening and again in the morning so the children can report back to the rest of the class tomorrow? For those who live outside of Drumnadrochit it might be interesting to compare temperatures.
