Statistics: Wet HeadsAdd to list Details
In this math lesson, learners learn how to construct stem and leaf plots. Learners first estimate the number of drops of water that will fit on the head of a penny.
Dollar SignsAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners use number sense and mental math strategies to estimate the price of a sign.
Measuring RulesAdd to list Details
In this math activity, learners create their own units of measurement by making noodle rulers. Learners practice estimating and measuring objects using the noodle rulers .
Pace-Off!Add to list Details
In this math activity, learners use non-standard measurement (paces) to find the distance from one point to another. Learners practice estimating and measuring distances .
In this activity, learners use their feet to estimate distances. Learners calculate the distance of one step in centimeters by measuring 10 steps at a time to reduce measurement error.
Penny EstimationAdd to list Details
In this math activity, learners estimate how many pennies are in a jar by predicting and counting handfuls of pennies.
Jump Like a FrogAdd to list Details
In this math activity, learners jump and measure how far they can jump on different surfaces using different jumping techniques.
Dueling DiceAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners explore probability with dice.
Bark Beetle Infestation Investigation: Estimation and Pheromones
This activity investigates how bark beetles can threaten forests by having learners estimate the number of infected trees from a photo.
Blazing the TrailAdd to list Details
In this math lesson, learners estimate distances between landmarks and use a map and scales to determine the actual distances.
Number Sense and Computation: An Apple a DayAdd to list Details
In this math lesson, learners make estimates to analyze the number of apples per acre, and visualize the magnitude of one million.
In this activity (located on page 9 of the PDF), learners are introduced to Aesop's fable, "The Crow and the Pitcher." In the story, a clever crow drops pebbles into a pitcher to cause the water level
Shady SnakesAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners make pretend snakes and use them to explore estimation and measurement. Learners roll out clay snakes and estimate and measure their lengths and diameters.
The Right FitAdd to list Details
In this math activity, learners trace their hands and estimate the number of beans that can fit into their hand tracings. Then, learners glue the beans to the tracing to test out their estimations.
Through this nutrition activity (page 5 of the PDF), learners will understand—and probably be surprised by—how big serving sizes of various foods should be.
Tri, Tri Again
Learners estimate how many small triangles will fill a larger shape. Then they use a triangle stamp (or stencil made from a file folder) to fill the larger shape with triangles.
Stack-o-Pennies ShopAdd to list Details
In this math activity, learners pretend there is a special store that lets you pay for toys by their height in pennies.
How Many Pennies?Add to list Details
In this math activity, learners pretend there is a special store that lets you pay for toys by their weight in pennies.
Many Seeds: Estimating Hidden Seeds
In this activity, learners will estimate how many seeds are in a fruit or vegetable, then count to find out. The result: mix estimation with healthy eating.
Fill it to Capacity
In this math lesson, learners rotate through six estimating and measuring centers. First, learners read the book, "Room for Ripley" by Stuart J.
