Year 2 students are currently working on measuring mass. We are learning to make estimates of mass and are using balance scales to measure accurately. We know that some units used to measure mass are grams (g) and kilograms (kg).
Parents can help in this learning by encouraging children to help with cooking at home. Measuring ingredients involved in cooking or baking can provide students with real-life contexts for measuring mass. Whilst at the shop, you can show your children where mass is located on packaging and/or explain that prices of items are often determined by their mass i.e. bananas $4.90 per kilogram.
