How Many Snowballs?

For a fantastically fluffy, winter-themed estimation project, I draw the outline of a large snowman on poster paper. I glue down cotton balls (snowballs) to cover it, counting as I go so I know how many I’m gluing. Then I hang the snowman in my classroom and ask my students to estimate “How many snowballs can a snowman hold?” The student who comes the closest to the actual number gets to take the snowman home!
