Topic B begins with children using correct vocabulary, heavy and light, to describe weight (again, as opposed to big and small). In Lesson 6, students choose an object from a prepared bin of heavy and light objects (brick, stuffed animal, feather, mallet, etc.) and describe it as heavy or light (PK.MD.1), “This brick is heavy; it is hard to pick up!” After, students work cooperatively to find or draw pictures of heavy and light things and to sort objects into a collage.
