Vivid and engaging photographs explore the concepts of same and different. Youngsters are invited to use what they know about color, texture, shape and weight to observe how objects change. An answer key presents the surprise discovery that all pairs of objects weigh the same, providing a unique introduction to conservation of mass.
Take a look at the pairs of objects. What’s different? What’s the same? Use what you know about color, texture, shape, and weight to observe how the objects change. See if you can guess how all of the object pairs are the same. You may be surprised!
