Product Description
This 110-page resource has all the student activity handouts I created for the class to use during our 2-week inquiry unit on rounding whole numbers, decimals and extended decimal concepts. It has detailed teacher notes on how I utilized the resources, including a “printer-friendly” edition so teachers can simply print and staple to create student packets or booklets of the activity sheets. The activities were created to meet all the Grade 4 and 5 Common Core State Standards Number/Operations in Base Ten.

This unit is the antithesis of the sage on the stage. It was designed for students to engage in the process of constructing their own knowledge of the math concepts. Students will be doing their own research and inquiry into the topic-they will need grit, they will struggle at first to explore the content without the teachers’ help, all while making their own connections. In the end, I think you’ll be surprised how much they can learn on their own-freeing you up to do more targeted instruction on what they actually need.

Given that these resources were designed to be open ended, they can be used with a range of ability levels. The resource sheets were used as formative assessments throughout the unit with a focus on the process of learning, including a summative assessment on rounding whole numbers and decimals.

The main concepts and key words this unit touched upon were: place value, rounding whole numbers, decimals, rounding decimals, the connection between decimals and fractions (enrichment).

This was a really fun unit-my students learned so much and they did it all on their own!

Printing Tips:
Please note that this product was created in 8.5 X 11 in. paper format standard in the USA. I'm teaching overseas where the standard paper size is A4. I've been able to print on any other size paper by choosing 'shrink to fit' or 'fit to printable area' in the printer options. I've even enlarged some response activities to fit on A3 paper for group work.
