I made these worksheets to teach my students estimating prices. The worksheets I found online where either too difficult or too easy (this is a little more advance then next dollar up).
Day 1- Rounding Up
Students will learn to round up if the cents is $0.50 or greater.
I did the first five problems with my students. 8 problems for guided practice. 3 independent
Day 2- Rounding Down
Students learn to round down if the cents is $0.49 or less.
First five problems done with students, 8 guided practice, 4 application problems.
Day 3- Practice Worksheet on both rounding up and down
Day 4 and 5-
Students are given prices of items and questions such as, "Jim wants to buy two items that cost a total of about $5.00. One of the two items blonds in the freezer. What items does Jim want to purchase?"
3 of these worksheets are included
Extras: Number line with dollar bills to help students visualize
Poster with the definition of estimate on it.
