oh, what to do with all the leftover halloween candy?

Oh, what to do with all the leftover Halloween Candy? 


Tons of Halloween Candy left?

Consider it a great excuse to practice measurement with the
triple beam balance through massing candy...


Here are some of my favorite things to do with this lesson: 
First: 
Some practice on the mimeo board with interactive websites. #1 and #2

Second: 
Independent practice reading triple beam balances.


Third: 
All you need for this lab is a balance and candy!


Using the balance, find the masses of each individual candy piece.

Add up the totals of all the candies.  (Calculators optional, depending on ability level).
Record the total.

Fourth: 
Find the masses of all the candies at once.
Record the total.
Fifth: 
Compare totals. And reflect.
 Are they the same? Did you measure correctly?
