Temperature by Casey Rand

Are humans endothermic or ectothermic?

Can plants and animals measure temperature?

How does a thermometer work?

Read Temperature to find out the answers to these questions and more. Each book in the Measure It! series explores how we measure, both in science and in the real world. You will learn about the different devices used in measuring, the metric and imperial measurement units (and how to convert between the two), and the history of many common measuring systems. Finally, apply your new measuring talent to some challenging word problems!

Heinemann Infosearch asks the questions you want answered. Each chapter starts with a different question and gives a detailed answer.
