I am trying to find a good hands on lesson plan on the concept of weight for first graders?

Question: I am teaching summer school and it is first grade math. We are doing measurement this whole week and I would like to touch and do a very basic introduction on weight, however, I cannot find a good lesson plan that will work. Most lessons want you to have a balance scale, problem is, I don't have access to one. I thought about having various objects and having them guess which one would be heavier and then lifting them up to see if they were right, not sure how successful that would be. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

This is from a site with a much too long address: From archeological finds, however, we now know that the Romans drove nails in behind the wrist bone because the fragile bones of the hand would not support the weight of a hu­man body hanging on a cross. The Greek word for hand covers the wrist. The Latin word manus does not. Few artistic represen­tations of the crucifixion were created before A.D. 600. The Roman government out­lawed that form of execution ca. A.D. 400. When medieval artists read their Latin NT __ or, more likely, heard it read to them __ and began painting pictures of the crucifixion, no one living had seen anyone crucified, so they painted what they thought they could deduce from the text. From archeological finds we now know how the hands would have been fastened and that the body would have been positioned on the cross with the legs drawn up and turned to one side so that a single nail could have been driven through both heels (1.80).

Stigmata has only been found in the Roman catholic Church since th middle ages and is unknown in the Orthodox church. The location of the woundstend to do refelct the imary the individual is most familar with and raies the question of what stigmata happenes at all.

Choosing different objects and guessing which one is heavier is really a lesson on density. Or weight, you should stick with the same material. Perhaps have different amounts of sand in different size containers have have them predict which weighs the most. You can you a kitchen scale as you don't need a balance. Then you could add equal weight of of the sand together and show that their weights will add together to get the new weight (i.e. twice as much sand weighs twice as much)
