This week we introduced estimating. We have asked the students to estimate or to make a good guess as to how many seeds are in the different kinds of apples we have been learning about. This week we estimated how many seeds were in the Red Delicious and Granny Smith apples. We were surprised to see that there were 8 seeds in both of these apples! Below see pictures of the students demonstrating what we do for estimates that are to high, to low and an accurate guess or "right on the nose." We also saw the shape in the middle of the cut apple- a star!
