Task 1 - Estimate!
How many mini starburst are in the 1/4 cup below? Make an estimate!
Answer - how was your estimate?
You might want to explain that the 1/4 cup shown was full but perhaps "overfilled" and 30 would be acceptable as well!
Task 2 - estimate the bag!
So... there were 30-37 in a 1/4 cup... how many in this bag?
Answer! - Are you surprised?
Task 3 - analyzing our answers and the bag...
Here's a chance for your kids to get deep into it. Okay... we know there are 30-37 mini starburst PER 1/4 cup. Look at the nutrition label below. Are you mad?
What do you notice? What do you wonder?
Are you surprised?
Are you mad, bro? ... or satisfied
Is the difference a lot or a little? What is the percentage of error?
How many would be per serving if there truly are 6 servings???
If you paid $3.09... were you ripped off? By How much?
