Rounding Freebie

We started the year off with place value and rounding. My kiddos learned to round on a number line by finding the benchmark numbers on the number line. For example, if they were rounding 3,567 to the nearest hundred. They would find the two closest hundreds to this number 3,500 and 3,600. They would also find the midpoint between the two hundreds, 3,550. Using these three numbers they plot the number 3.567 on the number line. Since 3,567 is greater than the midpoint, my kiddos know that it is closer to 3,600. I want to share a review center I created for my students. Click here to get your Freebie!
