And the estimating champions are…


misc students

I definitely “underestimated” the interest the Lower School students would have in our recent Estimating Challenge! One large container filled with ping-pong balls, and another smaller jar filled with mini bouncy balls, provided lively conversation and debate among friends. Teachers combined lessons on capacity and estimating with an “in-school” field trip, where students applied different strategies to come up with their best guess. The winners were chosen based on how close their estimates were to the actual number of balls in each jar. The final count? The small jar had 288 balls, the large jar had 136!

And so, without further ado, I present to you the proud winners…
