Estimators Cup 

Congratulations Mrs Walsh's Kindergarten. They won our estimator cup competition. The strategy they used was to create a smaller object (tablespoon) and use 10s to count to 100, then counted the hundreds, then estimated how many tablespoons.
The results were tallied by Mrs. Konrad's 3rd grade counting crew. The 5 students started to count and create sets of 100, but realized it would take forever, and they would make too many mistakes, so they used a small cup, and filled the cup until the container was empty. The final number was 21,156. Mrs Walsh's class estimated 21,000.
