I really, really like this estimation problem.

The bag tells you the total number of ounces of candy.

That gives you some perspective.

I can adapt this for my 6th graders in

(1) having them predict
(2) then after the answer video discussing why their prediction was accurate/inaccurate
(3) ask if their predictions could have been made more reasonably and not just a guess
(4) ask them to determine the weight of each candy bar (using the package info)
(5) predict the number of bars that make up a pound
(6) take a standard Snickers bar and ask them to determine precisely how many minis make up a standard Snickers

When Math Happens

How many Snickers are in the bag?
