Rocks and a Scale

This week we did this--

And we recorded our observations--

A magnifying glass with an eye!
Getting each number as a rock is added.
"Wait! What was that last number?"
"Look how much it is!"
We wrote some big numbers.
(How can you offer opportunities for your child to record their observations, thoughts, and ideas?)

And we expanded our experiment--

And we learned what "ERR" on the scale means.

(It means "error" as in "that's too heavy; take something off!")

P.S. - You can still play the "Pay It Forward" game and get some Nashville/Tennessee stuff. Comment on this post.
