Learn how to use a diagram to represent measurements of weight in the third of five videos on the topic. A handy review of conversions begins the activity, with an example of how to use a table to determine conversion amounts. The video then walks through solving a word problem and checking the work using different diagrams to assist thinking.
Have fun with Jack and his beanstalk! Primary learners will practice skills at various activity centers, including: weight measurement, money, art, nonstandard length measurement, problem solving, music, reading, and writing. Every activity ties into the story.
Students experience a positive science experiment and study fundamental concepts of measurement.
After examining how a spring scale works, teams work together to design their own general measurement device. Reading material provides background information, but there is no part of the procedure in which learners handle an actual spring scale. Consider letting them do so in order to give them a fuller understanding of what they are to design. This activity can be done in a math class as part of a measurement unit, or in any physical science class.
In this comparing weight measurement worksheet, students observe rows of objects and identify the heaviest ones. Students solve 2 problems. 
I would weigh less on the moon? Send me there, then! On the top of the first page, a cartoon image demonstrates the difference between Earth and the moon. It then goes on to describe weight and mass and provides five practice problems for force and mass. The second page introduces learners to forces in equilibrium. Five word problems follow. This is a fun and practical assignment to give your beginning physical scientists for reinforcement. The title of the page makes reference to a specific unit; simply white this out before photocopying if this is unfavorable to you.
Fourth graders are introduced to the various types of measurements. Using a recipe, they practice measuring out the correct amount of ingredients while making the food. They also practice using a scale and following the directions on a recipe.
Estimate and explore the length and weight of classroom items using standard measurement and scales. Students will work in groups to determine appropriate measuring tools, weigh or measure items, and record their results on a data chart. They will also participate in a related online activity.
Learners estimate and compare grapefruit weights. In this weight measurement and literacy lesson, students listen to the story Nate's Big Hair and the Grapefruit in There, then estimate the weight of a grapefruit after holding it. Learners compare and record the weights of classroom items using a balance scale. Suggestions for grade level differentiation are given.
Learners brainstorm words that describe the weight of objects. They pick up objects and estimate the weight. Afterward, students find the exact weight and compare U.S. units of weight to metric units. In groups, learners create a chart and annotate the predictions and actual weights. They draw pictures of objects and list the weights.
Students literally "walk the plank" and record the weight measurement. They use this to discover the concept of negative slope.
How do you break down and solve a word problem that involves converting weight measurements? And how can that help decide how many strawberries are needed in fruit salad? That's the focus of this instructional activity. A handy review of metric units begins the learning, along with a discussion on pulling important information from a word problem and the common mistake of not taking unit size into account when deciding which weights are heavier. The core instructional activity walks step by step through solving a multi-step word problem. This is the third of five videos in the series.
Kindergartners measure the lengths of common classroom objects. They use standard and non-standard measures. The little ones should love this lesson because they get to use tape measures, rulers, yardsticks, scales, clocks, calendars, and thermometers. After listening to the book Twelve Snails to One Lizard, youngsters get into groups and practice using their tools of measurement. The lesson will require quite a bit of parental, teacher, or big buddy help in order for it to be a success.
In this measuring mass worksheet, students convert U.S. measurements of whole numbers and fractions in ounces, pounds and tons. Students solve nine problems.
Students review the units of measurement of the Metric system. They translate a standard recipe into one using metric units. One group prepares the recipe using standard measurements and another prepares it using Metric units. They compare the two.
Record calorie and nutritional content, exercise, and weight loss with this functional application. As part of a nutrition or health class, open the eyes of teenagers to the make-up of what they really eat. Encourage healthy habits by having learners track their intake and output of calories.
Students measure and record weights and heights and compare to others in the class as they find out more about their bodies.
For this student exploration-weight and mass worksheet, student use the Weight and Mass Gizmo to answer questions and fill in charts with estimating and measuring.
Whether you are looking to change your weight, monitor your eating and exercise habits, or just looking to count calories, easily gain control of your personal fitness goals (or have your health or PE class do so) with a fun and user-friendly app.
Data collection and interpretation is a big part of math as well as science. Get kids into graphing with a hands-on lesson where butterflies are the main attraction. The class reviews everything they know about the monarch life cycle, migration, and the characteristics of monarch larvae. Each child measures a  monarch caterpillar, records his findings, and then uses the data to create a class distribution chart. Multiplication, metric measurement, and the life cycle; sounds like a winning combination!
