Fahrenheit vs. Celsius – Another Lesson Inspired by My Daughters

On the way to school this morning my older daughter pointed out that it was 62 degrees Fahrenheit. Her younger sister responded by asking, “what’s Fahrenheit?” To that her older sister said, “it’s the temperatures we use in America.” 

The conversation between my daughters prompted me to point out that our Canadian friends and most of the rest of the world uses Celsius. That, of course, led to me trying to explain the difference between Celsius and Fahrenheit to my five-year-old and a six-year-old daughters. I did the best that I could. After school I’ll try to explain it a bit better to them. To that end, I’ve consulted a few videos about the difference between Celsius and Fahrenheit. Those videos are embedded below.
