## Activities

**Estimation 180 from Andrew Stadel**- A picture for each day of the school year that can be used to develop estimation strategies and benchmarks for both SI and imperial units of measurement.

**Counting Trees from the Mathematics Assessment Project (MAP)**- In this task, you must estimate the number of trees on a tree farm - without counting every tree. Jessica Murk used this activity in her classroom has has a great description of the lesson and student responses.
