Weigh to go is a hands on measurement center using items you probably already have in your classroom!
Students will compare the weight of items such as glue bottles, pencils, erasers, tissue boxes and scissors using balance scales, and then record the results. There are 4 sets of measurement cards (total of 28), so you can have many students working at once. Develop concepts of more than, less than, heavier and lighter
with this fun math activity!
**You will need to provide balance scales and these items to complete all 28 cards:
1 bean bag, 1 roll of tape, 1 note pad, 1 box of tissues, 3 crayons, 3 shape blocks, 1 flashlight, 2 dice, 1 glue bottle, 5 pencils, 3 glue sticks, 1 tray of watercolor paints, 8 linking cubes, 4 pegs/clothespins, 3 letter tiles, 2 rulers, 1 domino, 1 pair scissors, 1 pencil bag, 5 markers, 4 erasers, 1 box of crayons, 10 paper clips, 1 magnifying glass, 5 cotton swabs.**
