Maths investigation

Is the biggest teddy the heaviest? Year 1 had great fun weighing and measuring the soft toys. We used a variety of measuring apparatus with standard and non-standard units of measurement. The children were incredibly precise with ensuring the accuracy of balancing and reading the scales - swapping 10g weights for 5g weights as well as repositioning the animals. Some children also compared the same bears using all of the scales to test for accuracy! We discovered that the heaviest teddy was in fact one of the smaller animals.
