The Estimation Jar is always a huge hit at a Family Math Night event. Kids love to make predictions. And when there's candy involved, it's even more fun. Especially when the winner gets to take the jar home.
I usually have two jars: one for K-2 and the other for 3-5 (or 3-6). The jars can be the same size or different sizes. If they are the same size then I put larger items, like Hershey's kisses, in the K-2 jar and smaller items like jelly bellies in the 3-5 jar.
Even though I designed these for use at Family Math Night events, they work just as well in the classroom.
