Rounding and Estimating: What is Estimating?
Children will learn exactly what the word ‘estimate’ means in this lesson as they undertake a variety of activities to become more familiar with the concept of estimation. The slides show children set of objects very quickly to see how accurately they can estimate how many there are. The main activity then challenges pairs of children to an estimation game using cubes, counters and paperclips whilst the alternative activity challenges them to estimate the length of different lines based on finger widths!
