I.

Objectives
At the end of the 40-minute learning period, 80% of the students should:
1. Define mass and weight.
2. Identify how the mass and weight are measured.
3. Differentiate mass and weight.

II.

Subject Matter
a. Topic: Properties of Matter
Sub-topic: Mass and Weight
b. Reference: Science and Life Series: General Science P. 160
c. Materials: Chalk, Chalkboard, and e-book

Learning Activities
A. Preparatory Activities
1. Greetings
Teachers Activity
Good morning/afternoon, class!

Students Activity
Good
morning/afternoon,
Gracelyn, Its nice to see you!

Its nice to see you too, but before you take


your seats, look around and pick up the
pieces of paper that you can see and
arrange all of your chairs. If youre finished
then you may now take your seats.
Thank you, Teacher Gracelyn.

2. Motivation
Teachers Activity
I have here jumbled letters in which if you
arrange them, it will form certain words. I
want you to go to the board and arrange
the following jumbled letters:
1. TEMRTA
2. SAMS
3. GTIHWE

Students Activity

1. MATTER
2. MASS
3. WEIGHT

Before we begin, open your e-books to
page 160.

Based on your own opinion, what is a Mass is the quantity of

Very good!
How about the meaning of weight?

Weight is the amount that a thing weighs.

Very good!
Yes, there is!
Is there a difference between mass and
weight?
Mass is a measurement of the amount of

an object.

Very good!
As you can remember, the weight is the
gravitational force of the Earth on the
object. Mass, however, is the amount of
matter something has.
Mass is measured by using balance

between the mass and weight?
Very good!
The mass of an object doesnt change
Can someone tell me the third difference when an objects location change. Weight,
between mass and weight?
on the other hand, does change with
location.
If you, move an object to another place, it
will not change its mass. The weight of an
object, however, does change if you
change its location due to the gravity of an
object.
The greater the mass of the object, the
greater its weight.
The closer an object is into the center of
the Earth, the greater its weight.

2. Summary or Generalization
Teachers Activity
1. What is the meaning of mass?
2. What is the meaning of weight?
3. Give one difference between mass
and weight.

Students Activity
Mass is the quantity of matter of
considerable size.
Weight is the amount that a thing weighs.
The mass of an object doesnt change
when an objects location change. Weight,
on the other hand, does change with
location.

3. Application

IV.

Teachers Activity
Identify if the following statements
are for mass or weight.
1. It is measured by using a
balance.
2. It is the measurement of the
pull of gravity on an object.
3. It is measured on a scale.
4. It does not change when an
objects location changes.
5. It does change when an
objects location change.
