A mood ring is a ring that changes color based on your body temperature. The idea behind the ring, which is explained in this video, is that your body temperature can be used to predict your mood. In this activity, you will use the Finch to predict mood in the same way!

Write a program that sets the color of the Finch’s beak based on temperature. The Finch should also tell you what your mood is for each color. The Finch should have at least three different moods, but you can add as many as you want!

To test the “mood Finch,” place your fingertip or palm over the temperature sensor.
