Maths worksheets: Counting larger numbers. Y3

Counting larger numbers

Children seldom get a chance to count a larger number of objects, say between 30 and 60. By seeing and counting this many they become more able to estimate larger numbers and give rough approximations, rather than just give wild guesses.
