Product Description
This St. Patrick's Day math activities resource makes counting and estimation fun and engaging.

Estimation is such an important mathematical skill. Repeated exposure to estimation activities leads to much stronger number sense. I love this estimation activity during leprechaun season. I use gold nugget shaped cereal such as Pops for the “Leprechaun Gold” in this lesson. I use the Leprechaun Gold Label to cover the box of cereal. They love this activity so much that I often do it a couple of times with different sized jars. With this activity I go to my local dollar store and get small but interestingly shaped jars. It doesn’t take a very big jar to hold 120 Pops. Proceed with estimation activity.

BONUS: I have added an individual activity to this resource. Search the internet for candy cauldrons. I set them on students’ desks on St. Patrick’s Day full of Pops cereal. Students proceed to do This Little Pot of Gold estimation activity. Talk about engaging bell work for St. Patrick’s Day. (I buy mine at Halloween every year and then save for St. Patrick’s Day.)
