#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be measuring and recording weight using balancing scales.

When the balancing scales have an equal weight, they are at the same level.

This means that the weight of this tennis ball is the same as three yellow blocks.

When one object is heavier than another, the scales will go down on the side where the heavier object is (the teddy bear).

The blocks are lighter than the teddy as they are higher up, so the lighter object will be the higher one.

Ok, shall we have a go at these questions now?
