### Weighing In

These measuring weight activities are sure to keep your kindergarten and first graders engaged! My students were GLUED to this lesson! It's a must-do for sure!

What's inside the boxes challenge which the children loved! 3 different sizes and weights which all made different noises (according to what was inside) encouraging the children to use all of their senses, and then write their guess on the box. Also great for prompting discussions with each other.

### Science - Using a Balance Scale... How Many Bears Does It Weigh?

This is a fun activity to explore the science of balance and weight in the classroom. Have the students use the classroom balance scales to see how much items from their pencil boxes weigh. Does it weigh 1 bear, 2 bears, 3 bears, or more? Your students will have fun weighing their school supplies and recording their data!

I would like to do something like this with my future students. It is a nice way to learn measurements and containers.

Awesome week long lessons on capacity....These lessons were designed for kindergarten, but will work GREAT for second graders. There's even a free powerpoint!

Label the differently filled bottles.

Weighing lesson. Fill the same empty bottles with different things. I used straws, rice and pasta, water and Hama beads. Using pan balance can the children place them in order of weight?
