The students created a balance scale on construction paper out of a one inch strip of paper and a die-cut "v". They then chose two magazine pictures to glue on the scale to show which was the heaviest and which was the lightest. They then wrote comparative sentences to describe the weight of the objects.

Weighing lesson. Fill the same empty bottles with different things. I used straws, rice and pasta, water and Hama beads. Using pan balance can the children place them in order of weight?
