This week we introduced the idea of weight. We had a small postage scale that weighs objects in ounces. We offered a basket of small items to weigh. The children had no difficulty figuring out how to read the scale. Some needed a little help writing the words of the objects. They could independently write the number of ounces.
After the basket of objects was weighed, some children decided to gather objects from the classroom like color tablets to weigh. Some also made predictions based on what other objects weighed.
