Think, believe, dream, dareā€¦

Day 4

The Challenge explores the common misconception that bigger objects are always heavier. Children’s previous experience may have led them to believe that this is always the case and this misconception can be challenged here. The characters prompt thinking around this, and children should be encouraged to pick up real objects to see which they think is heavier and to test them on balance scales.
