    Estimation Station
    By Crystal

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I am a fifth grade teacher and I also have something similar to an estimation station. Once a week the students estimate. I have a jar that I fill with gold fish crackers. Each day of the week, a group of students estimate how many are in their. By the end of the week, I go through and look at all the estimates. Who ever is nearest to the actual amount, gets to take the jar home and eat the gold fish. Then that student needs to fill the jar with something, and it starts over on Monday.

    This helps, because it is not always me that fills the estimation jar, it is the estimation winner of the week. The students love this.
