Year 4: Measuring temperature with thermometers & Micro: Bits

Today we have been learning about temperature. We learned about negative numbers and we had a go at measuring the temperature of water. We then predicted what temperature hot, cool and iced water would be in a hour and overnight. After that we wrote some code for the Micro:Bits to turn them into thermometers. We used them to measure the air temperature in different places around the school. We thought about how the air temperature might affect the temperature of our water. We will check the water again in the morning to see if our predictions were correct.
