Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be putting temperatures in order.



Put these temperatures in order (coldest number first). 


 -5°C  -3°C  2°C  -4°C  -1°C 



The numbers on the left-hand side of zero are negative numbers, such as -12 and -87


As we move left from zero, the numbers get colder/smaller.


When we look at the number line below, -5 is the coldest temperature on it.


          -5          -4          -3          -2          -1          0          1          2          3 


In the list of temperatures above, -5°C is the coldest temperature and 2°C is the hottest temperature.


The correct order is:


 -5°C  -4°C  -3°C  -1°C  2°C 


Note that positive numbers are always warmer than negative temperatures!
