Heavier or Lighter

Math comes alive in this interactive lesson, which prompts students to weigh small classroom-available items (erasers, pencils, rulers) as well as more obscure items that would need to be provided (a basket, a small toy car). Students then determine which is heavier. Working in groups would be a good way to complete this activity, as it would require fewer materials.
