We want it a certain hotness in the oven. If we don’t feel well, we u se a thermometer to see if we have a fever. We keep our rooms a certain warmth in the winter an d a certain coolness in the summer.
Not all the thermometers use the same system to measure temperature. We use a system calle d the Fahrenheit scale. But most other countries use the Centigrade scale. The most common kind of thermometer is made with mercury(水银)inside a clear glass tube. As mercury (or any other liqu id ) becomes hot, it expands. As it gets colder, it contracts( 收缩). That is why First. Take a clear glass juice bottle that has a cap; fill the bottle with coloured water. Tap a hole in the center of th e cap using a hammer and thick nail. Put the cap on the jar. Then stick a plastic straw( 吸管) thro ugh the nail hole. Finally. Place a white card on the outside of the bottle and behind the straw. Now you can s ee the water lever easily. As the temperature goes down, the water will contract, and the lever in the straw will come down. Perhaps you will want to keep a record of the water lever in the straw each morning for a week. A. We use and depend on thermometers to measure the temperature of many other things in our daily lives. B. Thermometers measure temperature, by using materials that change in the same way when they are heated or cooled. C. Now that you know this rule you can make a thermometer of your own that will work. D. The water will rise in the straw. As the temperature of the air goes up, the water will ex pand and rise even higher. E. They label these in different ways. On the Fahrenheit scale water freezes at 32 degrees an d boils at 212 degrees. On the Celsius scale water freezes at 0 degrees and boils at 100degrees. F. Take wax (you may use an old candle if you have one) and melt some of it right where the straw is struck into the cap to seal(把..粘住) them together. G. People use thermometers which are made by themselves when travelling around the world. 71._______ 72. _________ 73. __________ 74. _________ 75. __________ （六） What is your favourite colour?
