Going to start w/ “integers early” version and an interactive “let’s put these degrees where they’d be on the thermometer” thing. There are 31 activities that come up on Geogebra when I search for “thermometer,” including 1 from Illustrative Math that has an activity with a word problem, where you can use the activity to […]
