Today we had a lot of fun measuring some physical properties of different objects! Students used rulers and tape measures to find the length, width, and height in centimeters and a balance scale to find the mass in grams. We compared our results and discussed why we didn't all get the exact same measurements. Ask your child to describe the experiment and tell you what he/she learned. We'll continue to work on matter and mass for a couple more weeks, then take an assessment of the knowledge we've gained.
Here are a few photos of our experiment.
