Product Description
A 4-page lab document that gives students the opportunity to practice using a bulb thermometer and gain experience predicting and measuring temperature in Celsius.

This lab activity arose because it quickly became apparent that my middle school students needed to gain greater experience in three areas: manipulating scientific tools to collect data, using Celsius as a temperature scale, and creating graphs. The lab is a simple station-based activity where students first predict the temperatures of different, everyday things in Celsius, then measure them using a bulb thermometer, and finally, graph their results.

Lab Techniques Addressed by This Activity:

- Making predictions
- Following a procedure
- Using scientific tools (thermometer)
- Collecting data (temperature in Celsius)
- Graphing data
- Analyzing data

Full Answer Key with Sample Data and Student Letter

- The product features a full answer key with sample student data
- Sample data is helpful if there are students that are absent or otherwise unable to finish the experiment whom you would like to still complete the activity

- This worksheet comes in 2 formats: a static PDF document and fully-editable WORD document
- Download the full PDF preview to see EXACTLY what you are getting!
