How to use a Digital Thermometer

Place the digital thermometer on the back of your tongue and close your mouth.

Press the button on the thermometer so that it will begin taking your temperature.

Remove the thermometer from your mouth when it beeps.

Read the degrees on your thermometer. If your temperature is over 98.6 degrees, you may have a fever.

Replace the digital thermometer in its protective case.
