Handa’s fruit

For those of us who were looking at the book Handa’s Surprise we became interested in comparing the weight of the fruit.

We needed some big scales, so luckily Mr Lyon was able to help and made some for us.

Edward was able to see how the scales work “we need to make both sides equal”.

Ahsan noticed that “The pineapple is just a little bit big but there is more of the other one.”

We ended up finding that the scales were level with a pineapple hanging on one side and eleven mandarines hanging on the other side.
