Create a scale for your model thermometer. Divide the distance between the two marks into 5-mm intervals. Starting with the lowest point, label the intervals on the straw 0, 1, 2, 3, and so on. Describe your scale below.

So I don't understand this part: Divide the distance between the two marks into 5-mm intervals. My high was 120 Degrees F and my low was 40 Degrees F. I don't know how to divide these numbers in 5-mm intervals.

1. You are not dividing the temperatures. You are dividing the distance (length) between the upper and lower.
