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. If you have bathroom or kitchen scales at home, see what you can weigh.
