And kids can move up from Easy to Medium to Hard along the way. For Level 1, they choose a yellow card and then find the corresponding number model and place it on one of the scale plates. Next, your child must count out the corresponding number of cats to balance our the cat's scales. If it doesn't balance, you can try again. At the most difficult level (3), your child takes a card with a "number + number" on it and they have to do the math to figure out the number and collection of cats to place on the balance. There are also cards with "cats + cats" or "number + cats" in which your child will be challenged to figure out another strategy to balance the scale.
