Tipping the scales

Do you have too many skirt hangers lying around?

In the mood for cream of mushroom soup?

Wondering what weighs more: a daffodil bulb, a AA battery, or a vertebra from a wild bore*?

Then I've got the perfect DIY project for you!

This week we learned about mass. Each lab group built a scale using a skirt hanger with an empty mushroom package suspended at each end. We compared the masses of various small objects by placing them inside the baskets. Finally we checked ourselves using a digital scale.
