On Monday, we began to explore pumpkin math. We started off learning about "estimation". We learned that an estimate is a thinking guess. When you make an estimate, you use information you have been given, to make a thinking guess. We also learned how an estimate does not need to be correct all the time.
Today, we had to estimate the number of creases our pumpkin had. Boy, did we have fun! We even learnt to count by 5's while counting creases!
