Cute video. There is so much more the students can do with balancing numbers. The video is just the tip of the iceberg. Video could be used as an anticipatory set, but not as strong as a real life situation.

This lesson is used in conjunction with "A Simple Balance" and "Solving an Equation for a Missing Value"
