# Max Maths, Year 2, Try it, Comparing masses (1)

In the 'Max Maths' textbook for Year 2 students, there is an engaging activity titled 'Comparing masses (1)', designed to help young learners understand the concept of weight and how to compare different objects based on their mass. The exercise, 'Let's Try It', presents a simple and interactive task where children are asked to identify the heavier object from pairs of items. This is done by ticking the box next to the object they believe to be heavier.

The activity includes multiple pairs of objects, labelled from (a) to (d), each pair consisting of two items that the children must compare. The goal is for the students to visually assess and determine which of the two has the greater mass. This exercise not only aids in developing their ability to compare and estimate weights but also enhances their observational skills. It's a hands-on approach that makes learning about mass a fun and practical experience for second-year students.
