Deflated Balloon

Deflated Balloon Worksheet

Worksheet Description

The worksheet presents a simple lever balance with two objects hanging from its arms: a balloon on one side and a weight on the other. There is a blank rectangle below the balance, likely intended for students to write a word in. The instructions ask the student to color the balloon that is heavy in scale and then write the correct word below. This suggests that the exercise includes a discussion or understanding that the balloon, normally light, is considered heavy in the context of the scale shown in the illustration.

The worksheet is designed to teach students about the concept of weight and balance. By coloring the balloon, they are asked to engage with the idea that objects can be comparatively heavy or light depending on context. The act of writing the word related to the balloon’s weight reinforces vocabulary associated with weight. Additionally, this worksheet may prompt students to think about the principles of balance and how different objects can weigh more or less relative to each other.
