Using a Digital Scale

 In the last month I have been working on putting together some containers with a variety of fun activities for my students to work on in their free time, or when they are done with their classwork.  I have found some great ideas on Pinterest to get me started, and so far have activities that  use Dominoes, dice, Dice in Dice and money.  I had an idea this morning to do one about weighing items.  Seems I can buy the digital scale at Walmart for around twenty dollars, and I think my kids will have a blast weighing things around the classroom.  I plan to laminate the sheet on the left and make copies of the answer sheets to have available inside the container.  I left three blank spots on the answer sheet so the kids can pick some items themselves to weigh.

  1. Digital scales are helping a lot to measure items. Now a days various types of scales like digital scales, truck scales, crane scales are available in the market to measure heavy items. I have recently came across a site who is providing the service in the scales.
