This pack of scales is not only multi-dial, but also comes in three different sizes, measuring amounts to 1kg, 3kg and 5kg. This will help children with the requirement to read and interpret the numbered divisions on a scale throughout KS1 and KS2 practical contexts, choosing the appropriate equipment for their tasks.
Each scale comes with seven different dials, progressing from unnumbered divisions at halves, to those at quarters, fi fths or tenths; with amounts shown as grams (g) and kilograms (kg). This means that all stages of development in reading scales from Year 2 to Year 6 are covered, including reading numbered divisions, half-divisions, between two unnumbered divisions, and comparing readings on different scales. For each scale there is also a conversion dial showing lb and oz, matching these to the g and kg equivalents. The dials are simple to change and reusable, and can be marked on with a drywipe pen so that you can mark them as required.
The measuring pan is easily removable so it can be washed and stored separately. Low cost, affordable and ideal for your measuring requirements at KS1 and KS2. Set contains 3 scales and 21 dials.
