This is an interactive notebook entry for rounding. I have my students glue this into their math notebooks as a reference guide for when they become confused or stuck on what to do while working independently. It includes steps for rounding and examples of how to round on a number line. This activity is common core aligned with 4.NBT.3.
I find that teaching students to round on a number line, NOT using rhymes or tricks, gives them a clearer understanding of how rounding works. Using a visual strategy, line a number line helps differentiate this topic for various types of learners at all ability levels.
- Cute and paste activities for students
- Blank templates so you can alter the number line examples for what you need.
