How Do You Measure Up?

Begin by exploring nonstandard units of measurement, and proceed through the use of metric units, focusing in on mass. Learners use three different types of scales for measuring mass: a triple beam balance, an equal arm balance, and an electronic balance. Both an in-class activity sheet and homework page are furnished. Use this in your upper elementary or middle school science classes, or as a hands-on math lesson in measurement.
