Heat is another form of energy that comes from the Sun and is needed by plants to live. But, be careful…too much heat will kill plants! Plants generally like the same temperatures as humans. Temperature is a measurement of the amount of heat in or around an object. There are several temperature scales that measure heat in degrees. In North America, we typically use the Fahrenheit temperature scale when we talk about our local weather. Scientists in all countries use the Celsius temperature scale.
