This past February, Ms. Curley's class kept track of the temperature every day for one week. They made a chart to post the outdoor temperatures for each day of the school week at 9:00 a.m. and at noon.

* On Monday, the temperature was 31 degrees Fahrenheit at noon. It had been 10 degrees colder that morning at 9:00 a.m.
* Thursday's 9:00 a.m. temperature was double the temperature for the same time on Monday.
* On Wednesday and Thursday, the temperature rose 6 degrees from nine o'clock until noon.
* Tuesday morning at 9:00 a.m., the temperature was 10 degrees warmer than on Monday at the same time. At noon on Tuesday, it was exactly at the freezing mark.
* Wednesday noon was 3 degrees colder than Thursday noon.
* The first reading on Friday was 5 degrees colder than the day before at the same time. It warmed up 5 degrees each hour until noon.

Temperatures can get to be confusing with the modern generations, since they have jumped from farenheit to celcius. Even though the freezing point is 32 degrees, I believe people can say farenheit or celcius/centigrade.

Don't feel obliged to leave stupid messages in every teaser... If you don't have anything interesting to say, don't say it!
