What Weighs More?
- Cut out pictures from magazines of objects that represent a variety of weights. You can adjust the range of objects you choose based on the level of your students. You may want to use several different sets of objects to give your students more experience.
- Mount the pictures on thick paper. Write an estimate of the weight on the back of these cards.
- Have your students place the pictures in order from the lightest to the heaviest or vice versa without looking on the back of the cards. You can write the weights on a separate piece of paper if this won't work for your kids.
- Have a key where they can check their estimations.
