#### Transcript of Peer Pressure

A Lesson in Peer Pressure
1. Look at the jar of marbles. Estimate the number of marbles in the jar. Write your guess on the piece of paper next to #1 (My Personal Guess). Do not share your guess with anyone. Fold your paper down to #2.

2. Get with a partner and make a second guess. You must agree what your guess will be. Write this guess next to #2.

3. Now make a guess as a table group. Together you will agree on one guess. Write your guess next to #3.
4. Now we will split the class in half. As a group you make a guess as to how many marbles are in the jar. Put this guess next to #4

5. Now we'll and vote to make ONE guess as a class. Write this guess next to #5.

6. Use the ALL the information you gained to make one last individual guess. Write that number next to #6. Circle numbers 1 and
6.
The amount of marbles in the jar is...
121
Questions
1. Look at numbers 1 and 6. Did you change your mind? Who influenced you and why?
