Measuring Weight

Today we looked at measuring mass. After talking about some of the different vocabulary used (weight, mass, heavy, light, grams, kilograms, scales) we investigated how heavy 1g, 100g and 1kg felt. We used balancing scales to measure the weight of different classroom objects in grams and some of us even measured our own weight in kilograms, using bathroom scales. Look out for the weight of different foods at home and in the shops.
