How to Find the Biggest Object in a Group - If we take a look at our lives, we all are busy in finding something or the other. While many of us are finding the direction to reach our goals, others are busy finding the real meaning to our lives. Finding involves efforts to figure out the final answer, destination, goal or object with the help of a few tricks or hints. This shows that finding is a real part of the game. More or less, our courses are also based on the same thoughts and patterns. A huge portion of mathematics is based on finding. Finding the variables, finding the unknowns, finding the objects etc. This means that if you ever come across a group of objects you where you have to find the biggest one out, you cannot find it out unless you know how to do it. To find out the biggest object in a group of objects, look for the size of the object, if the object looks bigger in size than the rest of the objects, it is the biggest one. If all the objects seem equal with a little difference in the size, height and weight, then you might have to consider measuring them with a fixed formula. These worksheets provide students with a series of objects and they must compare them and locate the biggest object of the bunch.

- Lesson 1 - When determining the answers to problems like this, I like to think about the concept of weight and size. I think to myself, “which of these would I definitely not want dropped on my foot?” I circle the item that I definitely don’t want on my foot.
- Lesson 2 - A car, a turtle, a bicycle, and a steam boat.
- Lesson 3 - For every row, look at the size of each object. Identify the bigger object in each row.
- Guided Lesson 1 - Write the numbers of the objects 1, 2, and 3 in order, from heaviest to lightest.
