An introduction was given for Kinder and 1st grade about the weight of items. First we compared the weight of common items to each other and then checked to see how many pennies they weighed. The 1st graders went on to record their findings by drawing the items they weighed and noting the number of pennies. Later we  talked about different kinds of scales and what could be weighed with them. We ended up weighing ourselves  and had fun trying to lift each other up.
