I could bring my husbands change jar to class. Students could estimate how much is in it. The estimates could be put on a number line. The money could be counted and returned to the jar. a scoop of money could be removed and counted. How much is left in the money jar. This would bring decimals in. My husband suggested that one could use weight as in estimating its weight, removing some and weighing what was removed… One might even be able to relate weight and value.
