The "Weight" Of Things
This week we learned about weight.
I asked the children to make a "prediction".
We learned that the word prediction means to make a guess.
I asked them to predict which is "heavier" and which is "lighter".
We used a "scale" to test our predictions.
The kids were amazed to find out just how light a feather really is.
They discovered that more of something did not automatically mean it was heavier.
I asked the question "does water weigh anything?"
They all seemed to think no. There was a big collective "wow" when we the children realized that water actually does have weight.
