Physics for Kids – Temperature (Ducksters)

This website is a great source for teachers to reference when teaching students about various parts of physics, but it can also be used as a tool for students to get basic information on what they will be learning during physics instruction. Since this is a website designed for teaching physics in the younger grades, most of the information provided is just to get students introduced to topics they will be learning in a more broad fashion throughout science instruction, especially as they progress in school. In particular, this portion of the website talks about temperature, and not just how we think about cold and hot in weather — but rather how temperature ties into physics. This page from the website is a great tool to introduce students into thinking about temperature from a physics perspective – how we measure temperature in physics, what scales we can use for temperature, and how temperature relates back to the states of matter.
