During maths, we have been learning all about measurement! A few weeks ago now, we did this super easy and super fun maths craftivity.


During our activity, we spoke about using a balance scale to compare the weights of two different objects. I asked the kiddies to predict some objects in the classroom that might be heavier (and then lighter) than a pencil and used the scale to test our predictions. The kids loved using the balance scale and a few cuties continued to explore during their Learning Play that afternoon.

At the end of the lesson, we made our own balance scale using a triangle and rectangle cut from coloured paper. I cut them all ahead of time just so that we had more time to discuss, explore and predict during our lesson. The kids then thought about something that would be heavier than themselves. It was such an easy lesson and every single child was able to complete the activity successfully – yay!
