This resource provides a lesson in which children understand and use negative numbers in the context of
temperatures. Looking at the temperatures of different cities, they find missing temperatures and temperature differences. Temperature scales are provided which could help children who need a visual representation of temperature changes. An interactive thermometer for use on interactive whiteboards may be useful when teaching this lesson.
