Year 6 Probability and estimates worksheets
This is a game for 2 to 4 players. The aim of the game is to correctly estimate the correct price of an item. The game host holds all the item cards. Players are assigned an item and take it in turns to guess the price. The person closest to the correct answer ‘wins’ that item and is given the card. The first person with 3 cards wins!
