WALT measure mass


Yesterday, you looked at different scales and compared objects using different mathematical language such as heavier, lighter, heaviest, lightest.


Today's lesson is focusing on measuring mass. If you have balancing scales at home, you can use these to weigh different objects e.g. how many pencils does an apple weigh?


Work through the powerpoint and discuss each picture. The star tasks are on slide 8 for you to choose from.


Have a go at this mastery problem. How did you work it out?
