Measuring Water for Kids
Back in preschool and kindergarten, kids learned about measurements in terms of “heavy” and “light,” but now that first grade is here, it’s time to expand the fun and do some scientific measurement. Lots of kids will recognize a doctor’s scale, or perhaps you even have one at home. This activity will help your child understand the basics of scientific measurement and give her a chance to be a little scientist. Here’s how you can do it at home!
What You Need:
- Baking tray
- Mixing bowl that fits inside the baking tray (ideally clear and transparent)
- Measuring cup with ounce measurement lines clearly marked
- Simple objects, such as an apple or an orange
