Take Ten

In this activity, learners will make cleaning up more fun with predictions and counting. Estimate how many things are on the floor (or table), then count as they are picked up. Include predictions: If everyone puts away ten things, would we get everything cleaned up? Compare estimates with the actual number on the floor. As young children do this activity, they practice counting; older ones build estimation skills. Available as a web page and downloadable pdf.
