We are a kindergarten class in Minnesota. We use our blog to share our daily 'hoppenings' with our families.

Weight and Balance

The kids saw some posts about weight on Twitter and asked to learn more. So, we pulled out the balance and discussed words such as heavy, lite, and equal. We found that marbles and erasers were much heavier than pencils and glue sticks. The kids decided that glass and rubber were heavier than wood and plastic. Good observations!

We used the application Doodlecast to film what we learned about using a balance. The three recordings below had clear audio, as we are still learning how to speak loud enough for our iPads. I hope to gather more recordings as we explore math concepts in upcoming weeks. The kids have chosen to explore money next week.
