Balancing Act

Young scholars explore equality using a level pan balance, identify blocks of equivalent weights, and experiment with adding and subtracting the same weights to both sides of a pan balance. They observe and discuss problems using the pan balance as a class, then independently complete a worksheet.

I discovered Lesson Planet by accident, and am so glad I did. There would be times when I feel the materials provided to me are inadequate, and this site gave me exactly what I was looking for. I really love it when I give a task, and my students completely take over! I observe how determined they are to get the job done, and they feel more confident when the work is a success!
