  Today we are going to be thinking about estimating how long it takes to do different activities. Remember estimate means to take a sensible guess at something.

  Have a look at the table in the document below. Look at each activity and estimate how long it will take you to do that thing. You might want to make some estimates in minutes and some in seconds. Once you have made you estimate, if you can, have a go at the activity and time how long it takes you. You could use a timer on a phone, a stop watch, the second hand on a clock or the stopwatch on the website below.

  If you want to keep practising your estimating/ time skills then have a look at the document below. Can you use your time knowledge to put these different events/ periods of time in order?
