Topic C: Comparison of Weight

Lesson 12 Concept Development and Problem Set

Find one small item in your backpack. Put it on the balance scale. How many pennies do you think it will take to balance your object? Use pennies to test your guess. Make a picture of the balance with your object and the pennies. Finish this sentence, “My item is as heavy as a set of pennies.”

What do you think would happen if you put another penny on each side of the balance scale? Test your guess!

1. Did you notice any patterns as you were balancing your object with sets of different things?
2. Which set of things was the biggest? Which set was the smallest?
3. Why were all of the sets different sizes?
4. Compare your Recording Sheet with your friend’s. Did you get the same answers? 5 What new (or significant) math vocabulary did we use today to communicate precisely?
