Activity Instructions

Use the number line vertically to represent a thermometer. Label every five marks with a multiple of ten, using the outdoor temperature as your range. For example, If it is 76 degrees outside, label the bottom of the thermometer 60, 70 at the fifth mark, and 80 at the tenth mark. Have students figure out how many each hash mark is representing–in this case, two degrees. Have the students place a bean bag (or any marker) to show 76 degrees. Choose other temperatures between 60 and 80 or change the range and space between temperatures for more practice.
