Notes to Students: (teacher insight into the product)
What does it mean to estimate?We do it every day! Every time you ask yourself the question “I wonder how much could fit in this jar/basket/car/trunk, etc?” or “How many people do you think this restaurant could hold?” And then you answer…you are estimating! You are making an educated guess by using your mind and what you already know to answer the question of “about how much?”. In this activity, you will practice estimating with the help of different images. Please pay attention to how much space/surface area is already filled and how much the filled portion represents and use that understanding when estimating how much the entire vessel can hold. Good luck!
