Suevetha, the meteorologist just said that the temperature will be below 0 by 5 degrees celcius. So, what do I wear?
Word Wall Negative Positive Below Above
The term "below" describes negatives, so if we look at this on a thermometer...
Left Side of the Zero: Negative Integers- COLDER Right Side of the Zero: Positive Integers- WARMER
You should wear a sweater, or something that will keep you warm. It is going to be cold tomorrow. In Mrs. Meechan's class, I learnt that words can be used to describe positive and negative integers and the word "below" descirbes a negative integer. If we look at negatives on a thermometer, generally, they represent the cold.
