Our Estimating – Grades 4-6 lesson plan explores how to estimate for multiplication and division, as well as to determine distance and other measurements. Students are asked to explore and discuss real-world instances where they estimated or guessed about something in order to ground the lesson in the real world. Students are also asked to round, estimate, and solve problems on their own in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to use estimation for multiplication and division, as well as use it to determine distance and other measurements.
