Before you say "NO", ask your ITRT or Technology Coordinator! Our county has a whole bag that I was able to snag and bring into several classrooms today. Third graders at one of my elementary schools investigated temperature using the county's digital thermometers: GoTemps. We had so much fun measuring the temperature of different objects/substances and charting our findings on a MAC spreadsheet table. Information that was entered into the chart automatically generated a bar graph. Click the image below for the MAC Numbers template and customize it to fit your lab.
The GoTemps come with their own software that makes temperature recordings E-A-S-Y! Temperatures can be taken in Celsius or Fahrenheit and students quickly see the difference between the two different kinds of measurements. Here is a picture of one recording:
