Measurement - weight and mass

This week we'll be looking at weight and mass, exploring through using balance scales and estimations. 



Go through the presentation before doing your own weighing with your hands - find two different objects and work out which is the heaviest. 


Find a non-standard unit of measurement to weigh different objects - the children in school will be using cubes or counters. At home you could use pencils (roughly the same size) or pasta, using balance scales or hands to roughly work out the weight of different objects. 


Have a go at solving the problems below.
