Unit 3, Lesson 10# Compare the weight of an object to a set of unit weights on a balance scale.

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students work to describe and compare measurable attributes. They measure weight more precisely by using a set of pennies to directly compare the weight of objects. They find the set of pennies that weighs as much as an object. For example, students use a balance to determine that the pencil weighs the same as a set of 5 pennies.
