The Heat Meter
By Jody Williams
  

1     Where are thermometers? They are outside. They are in kitchens. They are a part of furnaces and air conditioners. They are in ovens, refrigerators, and freezers. Thermometers are also in almost every medicine cabinet.
 
2     Many people know that thermometers measure temperature. "Thermo" means heat. "Meter" means to measure. Thermometers today come in all shapes, sizes, and kinds. A thermometer that most people are familiar with is a bulb thermometer. It is a glass tube. It has a glass bulb at the end. There is liquid inside. The liquid rises and falls with the temperature.
