Primary Bucket Balance

by Learning Resources


Quick Overview

I bought this to introduce the idea of weight and balance to my preschooler. It doesn't take much to tip the scales of this balance as it's actually fairly sensitive. I've used it with the counting bears and just one bear will make it tip completely in one direction. The buckets are marked with 100, 200, 300, and 400 ml with 50 ml tick mark graduations. The lids snap on, but not very securely. The containers lift off the balance very easily as only gravity is keeping them on. It will need some adjusting of the calibration weights, located on the arms, once you get it out of the box and I've been able to get it fairly close to center. It's a great teaching tool for the beginner and until you start needing precise measurements in your kid's coursework, this is a good balance to begin with.


Perfect for exploring basic measurement concepts. Measure, explore volume and compare solids and liquids with this sturdy balance. Calibrated clear buckets with removable lids hold solids or up to 400 ml of liquid. Easy pour spout makes measuring liquids easy. Lids can also serve as platforms and the built-in drawer is perfect for storing weights.
