Classroom Ideas

This clip can be used to introduce pupils to the existence of negative numbers in the context of weather. Pupils could be asked to watch the clip and then, following a brief discussion, create two pictures, one of a positive number temperature scene and another of a negative number temperature. The numbers could be specified beforehand by the teacher or pupils simply draw one positive, one negative and decide on the numbers for themselves.
