Warmer or Colder Than
This worksheet presents a temperature comparison exercise featuring pairs of thermometers labeled A and B. Each pair shows different mercury levels, representing different temperatures. Students are tasked with completing sentences by inserting either “warmer than” or “colder than” to accurately describe the relationship between the temperatures shown on thermometers A and B. The activity consists of six different temperature comparisons, each requiring a student to discern which thermometer indicates a higher or lower temperature.
The purpose of this worksheet is to teach students how to compare two temperatures and use comparative language correctly. It helps them understand the concepts of “warmer” and “colder” as relative terms and apply these to practical scenarios involving temperature. This exercise is designed to enhance critical thinking by requiring the students to analyze and interpret the visual information from the thermometers. Moreover, it encourages the development of scientific vocabulary related to temperature, which is essential for discussing weather, conducting experiments, and engaging with scientific content.
