Estimating: making your best guess with a good reason for it
We started out our estimation exploration with practicing what estimation is. Thanks to Ms. Grant, we had a station to visit where we practiced making estimations that made sense. We talked about how we wanted to make good guesses based on what we already knew. It wouldn't make sense to guess that there was 1 marble, 5, or even 10 in the cup of marbles. Sometimes we had to pick out some of the materials to test it out.
