the books:

Pinterest Thursday-A Lesson In Estimation

17 Sep

For our first science project of the year, I chose to focus on estimating.  We spent two weeks on this topic.
First, we watched an episode of Sid the Science kid about estimating.
Then, The Girlio had to estimate how many pennies we had in a jar.
We also did a couple of experiments:

These were great projects-very fun and easy to do.  The only change I made was to change 100 cm to 18 inches so that we could use a long ruler.
Finally, The Girlio got to play some estimation games I found on

Fun stuff!  🙂
