Use words such as ‘greater’, ‘smaller’, ‘heavier’ or ‘lighter’.
Make your own balancing scale, it is that easy! Use big yogurt containers - if you don't have halloween buckets that you trip over constantly.Let your child experiment with what is lighter and what is heavier. Use anything you can find and can fit in your bucket. Challenge your child to put the same amounts of different items, for example 5 stones and 5 leaves.
The challenge: Using balancing scale, can you order 3 objects from the lightest to the heaviest?
