A Christmas and holiday version of my favorite measurement activity for your math center! Teach children how to compare weights with this Christma-theme, hands-on measurement activity. These printables were made to be used with a balance scale and a number of containers filled with seasonal materials (directions included). Guide your kids through the scientific method as they explore the materials, take two materials, predict which is heavier/lighter, test their prediction, and record their results on the comparison mats or on a note.
