Earthy Estimates

This seasonal estimation activity utilizes seeds as the non-standard unit of measurement.


Students estimate how many seeds they think it will take to outline the recycling bin. They record their first estimate and then fill the outline with seeds about halfway. They count and record how many seeds they use. Students then estimate again how many seeds it will take to outline the bin completely. After outlining with seeds, students record the actual count.
