 Temperature Changes By Jane Runyon

1     Matthew was shaking when he came into class. It was April. He was supposed to be warm. He hadn't put on a jacket when he came to school. On his walk to school he had realized his mistake. It was colder outside than he had expected.

2     Mrs. Kim saw that Matthew was shivering. She decided that this would be a good time for a science lesson. She thought a minute. Then she went to the science closet and got out some equipment. When the bell rang, she was ready.

3     "Br-r-r-r," said Mrs. Kim. "You all look so cold this morning. What happened?"

4     "It was nice and warm yesterday," said Matthew. "I wore my shorts to play in."

5     "I wanted to wear shorts today," said Megan. "But my mom said it would be too cold. I got mad because I didn't believe her. Now I am glad I listened."

6     "Spring is a very puzzling time of the year," responded Mrs. Kim. "Sometimes we don't know what the weather will be from one day to the next."

8     "Let's see if we can figure it out," said Mrs. Kim. "How many of you like hot chocolate?"

9     Almost all the children raised their hands.

10     "Why is it called hot chocolate?" again asked Mrs. Kim.

11     "Because we put it on the stove to heat it up," answered Chloe.

12     "That is right," said Mrs. Kim. "You had to have a source of heat to make the drink warmer. What if it is too hot to drink?"

13     "I blow on mine to cool it down," answered Andrew.
