Weighing & Measuring
The Big Bumbles have been continuing to develop their understanding of weight and the process of weighing this week. We extended our knowledge by using digital scales and incorporating the idea of number bonds. Our children are getting stronger at making comparisons between items we are weighing and have established the concept that the same amount of different materials can weigh different amounts. Some of them can predict which item will weigh the most and place a number of items in order from lightest to heaviest.
