Like that it is hands-on for each learner in comparison to the estimation jar that I use in my Kindergarten class.

My students enjoyed this product because it was something a little different for them to do besides the traditional math. My students worked in groups and the conversations were amazing when each group were trying to figure out how many cotton ball for the Polar Bear they needed thru estimation or how many of their finger prints were necessary for the Snowman. My students also learned by finger printing I had each look at the others prints and I asked the question do you see anything different "Compare & Contrast". The chatter was amazing to listen to because my students found out that no persons or classmates finger prints were the same.... even identical twins.....Wow the look on their faces was so priceless. Thanks again guys you made my students day.

My daughter loved this activity! Not only is it good for estimation practice, it's also a great arts and crafts idea. Now she makes her own pictures and uses glue, pasta shells, beads, stickers, etc., with her estimations.

5 and 3 year old homeschool boys loved, loved, loved this activity. They continued to use estimation talk during their play time too.
