In this activity, learners will keep track of how much they can do in one minute. Instructors can pick something everyone will do for a minute, such as jumping up and down or drawing stars. Learners make predictions, complete the activity, and then compare estimates and results. As learners do this activity, they develop time sense for a minute and discover strategies for counting and organizing information. Available as a web page or downloadable pdf.
