Wait a minute, can you estimated a minute? how close can you get?

Wait a minute, can you estimated a minute? how close can you get? 

This is a great starter for a lesson on estimation or can be used for a random plenary to any lesson. I love the way in which pupils realise that this is not an easy task when they first have a go at the task! So how close can you get? Give it a go and then share!

This is a engaging task that can be used and adapted in many different ways. For example working out averages, creating charts or even an exit pass to any lesson.

I have even used this with a whole class in a computing suite where everyone participated at the same time.
