Guesstimation is a collection of flash card activities that uses multiplication, mental math and estimating skills to complete different challenges. Students take their knowledge of basic multiplication facts and stretch it further – building fluency estimating larger numbers, comparing/ordering estimates, devising word problems and more.
I’ve set up these activities as centers that students rotate through; as choice work for those early finishers; as morning math activities or even as a fun review of a few estimation concepts before a quiz or test.
Each student uses one set of Guesstimation playing cards (50+ per set) for everything, regardless of whether it is an individual or cooperative learning partner activity. A page of blanks are included so you can create more cards to simplify or boost the level of difficulty. Instructions for six different activities are clearly explained on the Guesstimation Activities page and can be printed as a handout or posted for centers.
