Making It Balance

Students listen to story, "The 100-Pound Problem," compare their weight with character in story, and weigh different classroom items using nonstandard units and standard units. They experiment with different items that can make scale balance, identify when it is important to know how much something weighs, and discuss difference between using personal balance, kitchen balance, and balance scale.
