Now it's your turn to start estimating at home. Ask your grown up to collect an object you have a lot of at home, this can be anything from Lego bricks, toy cars, pillows, fruit. Once they have got them they then have to make a small group of them (1 - 10 to start off with). They will reveal the group to you for a few moments before covering them up so you don't have time to count them all. Now you have to try and estimate how many there were. Once you have said your answer you can then count to see how close you were. Repeat this a few times before moving on to a larger amount of objects.
