Rounding can cause some students to go dog-gone crazy! But with this mini-unit you can have them rounding like pros in no time! I have used this method with my own students for well over 5 years, and it has made all the difference. It's all about the color! Once students have been through this mini-unit, rounding to the tens is a snap. That sets students up for success for rounding to hundreds and thousands later on.


This mini-unit includes;

  • Rounding number line in both color and black and white (for students to color)
  • Four worksheets that move students from using the number line, to working without it.
  • Grading keys for each worksheet
  • Math Round-Up Game is easy and quick to play, and helps students internalize the rounding process.
  • Teacher notes
  • Dog jokes

Comments about this resource include:

I really like these engaging activities and that it builds the idea of rounding step by step!

Thank you for creating a great way to introduce rounding! I will definitely keep using this to help students understand this key concept!

My students SO needed this.

This is GREAT! I was having trouble getting this concept across to a couple of my students, but the color just made perfect sense to them!
