Making measurements - Massing an object

Today was the second day the students practiced using the pan balance scales to find the mass of an object.  We discussed the various metric units to use in measuring mass.  They measured the mass of various objects to the nearest gram (g).

The students were shown how to balance the scale, or zero the scale, before using it.  The students created their own data chart to record theri measurements.
