These activities include:
* Estimation game - Students play with partners and choose to round by 10 or 100 in order to reach a goal of 1,000 points. The player closest to 1,000 without going over wins. There is an addition version and a subtraction version which can be played at different times.
* Mental Math Marathon Activity - Small group activity where students use mental math and estimation to be the first in their team to correctly match up number sentences with sums or differences. Both the addition version and subtraction version are included along with answer keys. This can also be played as a whole group activity to reduce the number of copies needed for small groups.
* Independent practice sheet. Assess the students' fluency and accuracy for using estimation to add and subtract. This practice page can be used again later to increase fluency.
These activities were created as a companion to a 35 slide PowerPoint presentation. They are sold separately and bundled together. Check it out...
