This is an interactive activity to compare weights and sizes of animals, using virtual balance scales. Discussions will introduce comparative language such as 'greater', 'smaller', 'heavier' and 'lighter'. The report screen asks pupils to complete comparative statements about the animals. This report can be printed off as a record or to use as stimulus for class discussion about pupils’ findings.

Intending to use as a mid year assessment as a variation from other types of assessments (paper, oral etc\) particularly useful as my very ICT savvy class will love recording on the computer, then I can print for my records!
weighing activity. Great. Am doing an PSR&N observed lesson in the morning, and the weiging activity is perfect for an independant task. we can do the 'report' bit together - the children love the voice as they click on apicture.
