These large hearts were made by hand painting (painting with our hands!). We first covered the surface of a large scroll of paper by mixing red, white and yellow paint on the page with our hands. Once it was dry, we traced and cut out hearts in all shapes and sizes. We made a large pile with all our hearts and the students were asked to estimate how many hearts were in the pile. They were asked to take into consideration how many students are in the class and aproximately how many hearts each student cut out. After each student had a chance to share their estimation, we counted our hearts to see how close our estimations were.. P.S. We had 76 hearts...for those of you who are curious!
