    You can measure temperature in your house:
    – by looking at the thermostat to see how warm or cold the house is
    – looking at the setting in the fridge to see how cold it is
    – turning on the oven to a certain temperature

    You can help keep your house warm by:
    – getting extra heaters
    – using lots of insulation in your walls to make air pockets
    – keep doors and windows shut

    I have a thermal camera on my ipad that can see how warm something is. When you see red on the thermal camera that means something is hot. When you see blue it means somethings cold. When you see green that means it’s a little bit warm and a little bit cold. We have a thermostat in our house that we can control the temperature with. I test the temperature of my bathtub water by dipping my toes in first to see how hot or cold the water is. If it is too hot or too cold I get my parents to help change the temperature of the water so it is just right. Bonus: We could use the fireplace, keep doors and windows shut tight and love your family so you can feel the warmth.

    Three ways to measure temperature:
    – in the freezer, water freezes as 0 degrees
    – set the oven to a specific temperature
    – you could check for flowers outside. They only bloom when the temperature is warm
