Print and laminate this scale.
Use blocks to balance each side.
Great for use in equivalence lessons.
Work in pairs - one student places down a certain number of one colour of blocks and another number of different colour blocks. The other student must 'balance' the scales and put the same amount down using a different combination of coloured blocks.
E.g. Student A puts down 3 blue and 4 red blocks, Student B places 6 blue and 1 red block down to 'balance' the scales. Students then write the equation e.g. 3+4=6+1
