This is a fun activity to explore the science of balance and weight in the classroom. Have the students use the classroom balance scales to see how much items from their pencil boxes weigh. Does it weigh 1 bear, 2 bears, 3 bears, or more? Your students will have fun weighing their school supplies and recording their data!
Kindergarten (Early Stage 1) YouTube video that shows heavy/light and balance on a seesaw. Good to compliment a Scale lesson - Early Stage 1 Mass Strand of the New South Wales K-6 Mathematics Syllabus.
