# Compare Objects by Weight

This is a comparing game activity chapter, where children will learn to compare two objects by weight. See if they can identify the weight of each given object.

Weight, in the sense of daily life definition, refers to how heavy an object is. In this comparing game activity chapter, students will be able to compare two objects by their weight. Each level has five questions, each with two objects to compare. There are also five notation signs to compare the left object with the right object. Students are tasked with comparing the weight of two given objects in each question, and decide whether the left object is heavier or lighter than the right object.

This game can be used with the following in class activities:

• 105 Paper Science (Discovery/Science). Age 4, Term 1, Week 5
Take two identical sheets of paper
Show the children that they are exactly the same
Ask a child to crumple up one sheet of paper
Drop sheets of paper, the crumpled one and the uncrumpled one, to the floor from the same height.
Discuss why one fell faster than the other one.

• 127 Down It Goes (Discovery/Science)
Give children several objects to drop â€“ feathers, marbles, Styrofoam packaging, small blocks, cotton, rocks, etc.
After individual experimentation, help children to draw conclusions based on their observations â€“ which items dropped slowly and which items dropped quickly.
