Studying "rounding decimals" or do your kids just need a little review of rounding to the nearest tenth, hundredth, and thousandth? They are sure to enjoy this Rock and Roll themed decimal game.
How does the game work? Students will roll, solve, and then go. On a student's turn, they will roll the dice one time. They will then move that many spaces. They will then round the decimal to the place given. Their partner will check the answer on the key. If they get it right, they get to move ahead one more space. If they miss it, they move back 3 spaces. The first one to the end wins the game.
Examples of numbers included on the game board are: Round 456.57 to the nearest tenth, round 289.2693 to the nearest thousandth, plus lots more!
NOTE: This is a black/white game with black line graphics. There is NOT a color copy included. When I created this for my own class, I decided to make something that took few copies, something that would save my ink, something that had easy directions, and was very little prep work. :-)
This decimal game will work perfectly as a math center during math rotations.
Please look closely at the thumbnails and preview to make sure the decimals I chose will work for you.
For this game, you will need a dice, game markers, the game board, the answer key, and possibly notebook paper.
Your students are sure to have fun as they play.
