Thank goodness for swimming pools and air conditioners!
My kids have been lethargically asking "How many more days is it going to be this hot!?!" ( Oh, wowes me, my poor children!)
So, I figured it was a good time to practice a little math.
We wanted to know the average temperature for the week. You can do this at home, too. You can find your local TV station's 7 day forecast on the web.
Next, have your kids write down the highs and add them together.
Step 1: 97+100+94+91+91+98+101=672
Step 2: 672/7= 96 degrees
Congratulations, you just found the average temp= HOT!
Each of my kids really wanted to find the answer on their own. So, we made a rotating schedule for the rest of the summer so everyone gets a turn. Incorporate the low temps on your newly made temperature rotating system and, yay, everyone gets another turn faster!
Well, off to the pool we go! With sunscreen, of course!
