Can you compare?
This lesson can be used as a pre-lesson for the Heavier or Lighter? lesson plan.
Students will compare the weights of objects.
Students will be able to explain how to compare objects based on their weight.
- Gather the class together and hold up two objects (e.g., an inflatable beach ball and a basketball).
- Ask, "Which of these is heavier?"
- Pass around the objects and allow students a chance to hold and compare each objects weight.
