"Estimation" is a great math activity to give students practice rounding numbers to the farthest place value in the number and then adding/subtracting to get an estimated sum or difference. For an added challenge there are four cards that require students to round one number and then work with that number and the estimated sum to work backward to find the missing digit in the original problem. Each download comes with a colorful game board, 24 problem cards, answer key, and directions. (Problem cards are designed for easy assembly... they can be printed front to back to create a double sided card without having to glue the front and back together.) This math activity is perfect for center work. Kid tested...teacher approved!
