Kilograms and Grams

This is a video I made last year for my students. It's from a now defunct "create your own animation" website that I really miss!  

If any blog visitors have a similar site they can recommend, I'd love it if you would share it in the comments. I'm looking for something that's fairly easy to use and it must also be free!  

The kids loved it and I hope you get a kick out of it too! 

The key learning I want the boys and girls to take from this video is that: 

  • it is essential that we use the correct unit of measurement as it relates to weight (or any math concept for that matter) 
  • there are 1000 grams in one kilogram
  • one gram is about the weight of one paper-clip
