dime_google-image.jpgThis week we would like to tackle measurement.  Yes, measurement not money!  It is always good to have something you know to compare to a weight, so you can better understand how much that weight is.  Here are two pictures of objects that weigh about one gram.  Either measure with a scale your teacher provides or estimate some items in your classroom or at home that might weigh about the same as a gram. 

    Many adults have items they use to estimate metric weights and measures.  What are some that you or your parents might use to estimate measures in the metric system?  They may know one that will help you remember, how much is a gram?
