In our class we have an estimation jar. Once a week, one of us brings the estimation jar home. The person who takes home the estimation jar needs to fill it with 10-100 of the same objects. The jar returns to school on Monday and everyday we estimate.
|OUR ESTIMATION JAR|
On Friday, we read out all of the estimations and then we count the actual items in the jar. If the jar has candy in it, then we all get a candy but it has to be in a wrapper. If you have any ideas for us to put in our jar we would love to hear from you.

What some students say about this learning activity:
Mackenzie: “ I am learning how to count.”
Dakota: “We learn math by guessing the number in the jar”
Robyn: “We estimate the number in the jar and I am getting better at estimating.”
Tyah: “When you put a number in the jar you guess a number and if you get near the number like 5 numbers on each side of the number, then you have made a good estimation.”
Kylee: “It is fun when you estimate because you might get it right.”
Matthew: “You are only allowed to guess once.”
Hope you enjoyed reading about some of the math that we did on this INCREDIBLE day!
