This game helps students practice estimating in centimetres. It is a two-player game that can be played within one period. Very little materials are needed, just a page with a starting line (included) and a nickel or other coin. Students will enjoy flicking a coin as part of a game.
Students love competition! The goal of this game is to be very close with your estimates and gain points. Students subtract their estimate from the actual distance their nickel traveled.
This can be used as a whole class game/practice time or as a math centre. Laminate for best results!
