In Year 3 we have been using measuring equipment to explore what it used to measure and the units we measure with.
First we used balance scales and weights to explore how much a piece of fruit or vegetable weighed.
Next we used rulers, and tape measures to measure different things in the classroom.
Then we used force meters to weigh our school bags. Look at how much our school bags weigh, at this rate we will be weight lifters!
Our last task was to explore how much water weighed.
We discovered weighing water was tricky with the balance scales as they kept moving.
We all found out that 100mls weighs 100gms therefore 500mls weighed 500gms.
