Jungle Weights - A Base Ten Blocks Game

By: www.bbc.co.uk
MOLLY the explorer needs your help to work out the weight of animals in the depths of the jungle.

From monkeys to birds, lions to elephants – each animal is loaded in turn on one end of a scale to help you work out its weight. The game tells you what they weigh and you need to load weights onto the opposite side of the scale to make them balance. Get it right and the animal will give you a cheeky grin! Get it wrong and the scales will come crashing down.

There are three levels – medium, hard and really hard. The difference between the levels is the weights it asks you to use. The medium level only uses the 1 weight. Higher levels use tens, hundreds, and even weights weight just 0.5 or 0.25, making it useful for a range of ages, from five up to ten.

The cute graphics and music make it a fun way to learn – see if you can get five questions right in a row to earn a big cheer from Molly!
