The Rads find Uncle Norm trying to figure out the weight and cost of healthy snacks by trying to weigh one grape. Kevin points out that one grape is really small, and doesn’t weigh much at all, so it’s really hard to check its weight on a bathroom scale. To satisfy Uncle Norm’s kilo curiosity Alanna visits a veterinarian who will weigh some animals using different size scales.
The Gist: This episode is about accurate ways of weighing and appropriate use of the kilogram as a standard unit of measure. In the curriculum, children are required to choose benchmarks for a kilogram and estimate, measure, and record the mass of objects (e.g., can of apple juice, bag of oranges, bag of sand), using the standard unit of the kilogram or parts of a kilogram (e.g., half, quarter).
