We continue our exploration of the world of science by introducing the concept of weight. Using any type of scale, children are encouraged to compare the weights of the various loose parts to see which are heavier than others.
Kids love experimenting with the see-saw scale and seeing how many combinations they can create.
This is also a wonderful play based introduction to the concept of more-than, less-than and equal which is so important in early maths teaching.
To play along simply get out your loose parts and:
- Download and print the diagram from the product images; and
- Scan the QR code or click on the video link to watch the video
