QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
First, I love this packet of activities, but I found a few things that are wrong....the activity where they are predicting which object is heavier, the title is Which Weights More? shouldn't it be Which WEIGHS more? Then in the directions, it says "First predicts which item weighs more." Also the pages where they have to draw the object that weighs more or less is also titled Which WEIGHTS more.
