A Day's Wait

Clip to ScrapBook #2

Hemingway's story "A Day's Wait" is a good way to introduce the concept. A little boy thinks he is going to die because he is thinking in Celsius while his dad is using a Fahrenheit thermometer. I once created a lesson about converting temperatures by writing word problems based on other stories we had read, and I used this story as the introduction.
