Measuring Mass Worksheet and Flipchart Freebie

If you are teaching mass and how to use a triple-beam balance, these review sheets and Promethean Flipchart might be helpful.  I used them to support a lesson on mass recently and it seemed to help my kids understand the concept.  We talked about the meaning of mass, created a web of main ideas, learned the names of the parts of a balance, practiced reading the three beams and then spent time measuring the mass of small classroom objects using triple-beam balances.  Wow...that is the quick snapshot of a lesson plan!  I know how hard we are all working this time of year, managing our homes, kids and classrooms, so I thought another freebie might be helpful.  Happy Holidays from Kate's Classroom Cafe!

Here are the links to download these classroom materials for free:

  1. Thank you very much for sharing with our kids!!!

  2. An excellent freebie! Thank you!
    In science kids sometimes struggle to understand the difference between gravity, mass and weight.

    I have explained the differences as Homer Simpson takes a tour of the Solar System!
