Thinking ‘INSIDE’ The Box

Oooohhhhh Estimation. 
That is what we are working on. 


This is such a fun concept to teach! Estimation stations and hands on activities GALORE! Today, I tried something different with them. We estimated how many ‘objects’ would fit into a tape shape! Well, my kids loved this activity. We did as a scoot version.

Each of my little detectives had a spot to stand, a clipboard, and a pencil. Each shape was labeled with a number. They had to find the number on their page, and then estimate how many of the stated object would fit inside that particular tape shape. I gave them about 15 seconds to get their answer written down before we shifted. I had a total of 13 tape shapes.
