    Estimation Station (ongoing)
    By Krissy

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Something fun I did for my students last year was have an "Estimation Station." I did this every Thursday morning and when students came in the room, there was something new for them to estimate. We did things like:

    *raisins in a box
    *marbles in a jar
    *the length of my foot in inches
    *the length of the classroom in meters
    *how many large marshmallows would fit in a jar
    *how many pennies were in a jar
    *a catalog page with items circled to to add up and estimate total cost

    They enjoyed having a new task every week and it really gave them a good idea of what it means to estimate.
