Using a balancing scale students will weigh eggs!
I fill up 6 different color plastic easter eggs with various items (pennies, playdough etc) to make them various weights.
Student's place one of the eggs (say it was a purple egg) on one side of the scale then they measure the weight by adding jelly beans to the other side of the scale. They color the egg they measured then record how many jelly beans it weighed!
This is great activity to teach measurement *weight!
My students love it!
You will need jelly beans- balancing scales- plastic eggs filled and tapped shut with different items inside!
