Your students will love this Common Core aligned hands on activity! It was created to help them understand how to use a scale to weigh items in grams as well as estimate the weight of those items.
Students will weigh various fruits and veggies to create a "Fruit Friend".
*3 posters to reinforce the vocabulary terms estimate, kilogram, and gram
* Letter to parents explaining the project and asking for their help in supplying fruits and veggies (parent letter in English and Spanish).
*Template for students to record their data and calculate the total weight of their "fruit friend"
*Table to graph the weights of the fruit and veggies.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
