Reading Scales – Measuring Mass Worksheet

PDF | 2 pages|Grades: 1 - 3

A worksheet for students to use when learning to read scaled instruments to measure mass.

The metric scales used in this worksheet illustrate objects weighed in grams and kilograms. Students draw a line to indicate the mass on each of the scales.

A variety of graduations are included – with intervals every 20 g, every 25 g and every 50 g.

As an extension to this activity, ask students to brainstorm other objects that would have a similar mass to each of the examples provided.

Improve your students’ ability to read scales to measure mass with this worksheet.
