# Week 4 (11.05.20-15.05.20)

Mass

We are continuing with Mass and going to learn about finding the masses of things.

We are going to use a non standard object such as a marble to find the masses of objects.

We are going to compare objects using a standard object as a medium of measurement.

This week please look at the text book pages and complete the practice book sheets. These will be familiar to you as they are taken from the books we use in class.

Remember if you have your books at home you can use them. Don’t write in the text book. Write your answers on a piece of paper or in an exercise book like you do at school.

Dont forget to watch the Lets Learn videos

I found a video which teaches you how to make your own scales, have a go and see if you can make your own balance scales. All you need is a hanger and some plastic bottles you can attach them with some string. Make sure an adult helps you. If you make your own balance scales post a picture to the class blog! Have a look at the video below:
