Estimating and testing results in sporting events

Children were put into groups of 5 or 6 and asked to estimate each other's results in a range of sporting events.  They decided on the unit of measurement and measuring instrument to use for each one, and gathered results the following day.  Kicking a football, throwing a tennis ball, long jump and overhead throws were some of the activites they competed in.

The children accurately measured results and compared them to estimates.
