    scale, big, heavy, light...

    Hi,

    Can you all help, please ....?

    1) I need to explain the following words relating to size and weight comparison in a simple and easy way to understand for a group of 4 years old non-English speaking kids.

    scale (for weighing)

    big
    bigger
    biggest


    heavy
    heavier
    heaviest

    light
    lighter
    lightest


    2) In terms of weight, are the vocabulary "greater" and " bigger" the same in usage?


    Tks.

    For WEIGHT, use: heavy, heavier, the heaviest and light, lighter, and the lightest.
