Which Is Heavier? – Mini Book

PDF | 4 pages|Grades: F - Reception

A mini book that allows students to compare the mass of various everyday objects.

Use this teaching resource when exploring the mass of everyday objects.

How to create this resource

Print the PDF on A4 paper, then slice each page in half horizontally. Staple the pages together to create a booklet of A5 size.

A little book, but a lot of learning!

Each page of this mini book contains two images. The students must circle the object that is heavier or lighter (depending on the question).

When answering the questions, it is important to remind your students to visualise the actual size and mass of the real-life object. The images in the book are not drawn to scale.

The final two pages ask the students to draw an object that is heavier and lighter than themselves.

This resource provides plenty of colouring opportunities to assist with your students’ fine motor skills.
