Students need many experiences with estimating in their early years. Gumball Estimations offers students an opportunity to connect literacy while kinesthetically engaging in estimation experiences. A variety of suggested facilitation questions are provided as well as extensions to the main activity. Blackline masters are provided for use as needed. Note that the Gumball Estimations Mat is formatted to print on 11X17 paper to facilitate working with small hands.
This resource is good for students with dyslexia and language-based learning deficiencies.
