Tool Weights

Tool Weights Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet features an image of a two-pan balance scale at the top, with two squares on each side to place objects into. Below the scale are two images within dotted lines, indicating that they are meant to be cut out: a drill and a hammer. The activity requires students to cut out the images and paste them into the appropriate square on the balance scale according to which object they assess to be heavier.

The worksheet is aimed at teaching students about the concepts of weight and balance. It challenges them to make judgments about which of the two tools – a drill or a hammer – is heavier, thereby introducing the idea that different objects have different weights. This activity helps students learn to compare and categorize objects based on their mass, fostering early scientific and mathematical thinking. Additionally, the cutting and pasting component of the worksheet is beneficial for practicing fine motor skills.
