What other questions do you have?
Act Two: What information do you need
Here are some Lego prices from Amazon that you can use to figure this out.
- Amazon – Lego Ultimate Building Set – 405 piece kit
- Amazon – Legos Bricks and More Deluxe 704 piece Brick Box
- Amazon – Legos Bricks and More Builders of Tomorrow 605 piece set
As you come to an estimate, make sure that you show your thinking and process so that it is clear to other. Teachers – you may consider having students create posters that show how they came to an estimate or consider showing different ideas through a document camera.
