"Why does the red liquid in a thermometer go up and down? The discussion of this and other temperature-related topics are discussed in this outstanding book. Teachers will be able to use this book for years to come when discussing temperature, thermometers, and temperature scales.
Striking photographs are shown on each page, with the narrative of temperature and temperature scales. The photography is up-close, and children will easily see what the text is explaining. The book goes through topics concisely, such as what temperature is, how a thermometer works, the Celsius and Fahrenheit scales, and temperature facts. An activity is included to build a model working thermometer.
The book includes a glossary of science-specific vocabulary, a list of other recently published books about temperature for more reading, websites to visit, and an index. I can't wait to use All about Temperature with my younger students in a whole-group setting. It's appropriate for kindergarten through grade 1, has a reading level of 1, and is an Accelerated Reader book." - NSTA
