Light and Heavy

I got different objects from the pantry and around the house for Caleb to sort by weight.

Being playful โ˜บ
CALEB: It’s sooooo heavy! (Making faces.)
All done sorting!
I brought out the kitchen scale for Caleb to use. This helped to reinforce the concepts of light and heavy plus it’s something new for him to try.
Weighing things.
I told him that the farther the pointer moves away from the zero, the heavier it is. He enjoyed reading the weight of each object. It was only from 0-3kilos, easy for him to read.
He wanted to make the pointer reach all the way to the end so we overloaded the scale. He was so proud to tell me that it was too much, too heavy! Since the pointer went way beyond 3.
This is a simple and fun activity for comparing weights. Thanks for reading! ๐Ÿ™‚
