The concept of rounding to the nearest ten is a difficult one for many little ones to grasp. However, it is a vital skill that is later needed when determining if their answers are reasonable.
Students should be able to quickly round these numbers in their head to deduce that 40+40 is 80 so their answer should be around 80
I created this product to provide a step by step guide to allow students to round (or estimate) independently.
I designed two versions to choose from. The first has a rounded number line. The second provides a traditional, straight number line. Choose which format you prefer and print the page.
