Maths - Measures- Weight

1st class had great fun studying the topic of Weight.  They organised the food items according to weight, but without measuring or reading the weight on the packets! (Thanks to Mrs. Gallagher and her magic stickers!)  There was also a 30 second dash where each pair had to pick 2 items that they thought weighed the same!
