This is a basic yet fun game I made up to help kids understanding rounding to the nearest ten's place. It is a dice game, and I provide you with the game sheets. Kids will roll two dice. They have to decide whether to make a number that will round up or down. Making a number that rounds up to the next ten will earn them a point, so they quickly start looking and learning that 5,6,7,8,and 9 are the 'magic' numbers. The way I have the game boards set up, you can actually end up taking a grade for this interactive activity.
**9 sided dice are used in the game. :-) Or use the little foam cubes from the dollar store to make your own dice with your own numbers.
