Your students will certainly enjoy participating in this activity converting temperatures using different rooms in Santa's home at the North Pole as well as additional areas on Santa's property such as the garage and the state-of-the-art toy-making facility. Specifically, the students will utilize pictures from Santa’s home at the North Pole, such as the living area, the kitchen area, the outside of the front of the home, the garage, the kitchen where a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies are in the oven, the toy-making facility, and the study where Santa creates and engineers all of his next wonderful creations for deserving children. While investigating each of the rooms and areas utilized, a scenario is given as to the temperature of the room. It is given in either Celsius or Fahrenheit degrees.Your students are asked to make the conversion, specifically if the temperature is given in Fahrenheit degrees, then they are asked to convert the temperature into a Celsius measurement and vice versa. Students are asked to show their work, justify or explain their answer, and then conclude with their final answer.
Happy New Year!
