Citrus Measuring Activity


Citrus Measuring Activity | Kid's Fun | Harris Farm Markets

Have some fun with a very simple but engaging measuring lesson by getting the kids to measure the weight of citrus fruit:

  • Weigh the orange whole
  • Weigh the orange cut in half
  • Weigh the juice once juiced to see the difference it weighs
  • You could go further and learn about the amount needed for a cup, ½ cup, and ¼ cup
  • At the end they get to drink the juice

What you will need:

  • Citrus (oranges, lemons, grapefruit)
  • Scales
  • Juicer
  • Jug
  • Pencil and paper to write the results down
