Weighing standard and non standard SEN, Early Years and Primary

Weighing using standard and non standard measurements. 24 activity worksheets.
Identifying which object is heaviest and lightest from a choice of 2 after weighing them using cubes, counters (non standard) or grams (standard).
Suitable for SEN, Early Years, Primary, Preschoolers. 24 worksheets in total (18 suitable for lower abilities, 12 for middle and 18 suitable for higher abilities). As an extension higher ability pupils should be challenged to make their own worksheet - what objects will they choose and can they estimate which will be heaviest and lightest, then weigh the objects and check if their estimate was correct?
18 worksheets for lower abilities- 6 for identifying which is heavier and lighter (using balancing scales place one of the objects one side and the other object at the opposite side of the scales, then see which side moves down showing the heaviest object).
12 worksheets for lower and middle abilities to use balancing scales to compare 2 everyday items, then use photos to cut out, stick and glue, or if able to write they can write their answer in the correct column (non standard).
6 worksheets for higher abilities to use scales to weigh and record the weight of objects in grams, then to identify which one was heaviest and which was lightest (standard). They can also use the 12 worksheets using counters and cubes to weigh the objects. To make it harder get them to estimate the number first, before checking how close they were.
