Science Books & Films - Kimberly Kendricks

"Can You Guess What Estimation Is? by Thomas K. and Heather Adamson describes the process of educated guessing. The book explains why estimation is used and the most appropriate situations for using it. The book demonstrates how to estimate through example which is an appropriate strategy for this age group (grades 1 4). No formal definitions or procedures are given. Examples are provided through activities to which children can relate, such as counting bowls of candy, using individual objects to measure length and height, estimating time, and estimating the need for more or less, to name a few. The pictures are bright and colorful and will engage readers inside or outside the classroom. The text is large and legible and invites readers to find similar examples to those in the book in their own home, at the store, or in their classroom. The book also provides additional resources (website links, books, etc.) on estimation for those interested in learning more. Overall, this book is a great introduction to the diversity of estimation techniques." - Science Books & Films
