EChalk's Thermometer:
Use this interactive thermometer to practice reading temperatures and differences.  This thermometer is customizable, you can choose the minimum and maximum temperatures, intervals, move the slider to mark a temperature, and use the marker to note the previous location.

Thermometer Quiz:
Students practice reading temperatures with this interactive quiz.  Fahrenheit only.

Temperature Game:
Choose Fahrenheit, Celsius, or Kelvin and then click and drag the images/events to their correct temperatures.

Conduct a virtual experiment to see how different insulators help regulate the temperature of liquids over time.
