As a Matter of Fact

Elementary-aged scientists discover that all matter has mass. They are shown the difference between mass and weight, and learn how to calculate mass using the appropriate tools and methods. The scientific method is used while estimating and measuring the mass of objects commonly found in classrooms. An interesting science lesson with good teaching ideas!
