Explore understanding of place value to round whole numbers to a given place with this printable maths worksheet.

Are your students in need of some additional practice with rounding? If students understand the concept of rounding with smaller numbers but need to work on rounding with larger numbers, you have come to the right place! Teach Starter has created a rounding worksheet suitable for years 4 and 5 to practise this important maths skill.

With this worksheet, students must answer 12 questions where they round to a given place. Students will practise rounding to the nearest:

• tens place
• hundreds place
• thousands place
• ten thousands place
• hundred thousands place.

Additionally, students will answer two word problems at the bottom of this worksheet, which they must use their understanding of rounding to complete.

## Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

In addition to independent student work time, use this worksheet as an activity for:

• guided maths groups
• lesson warm-up
• lesson wrap-up
• fast finishers
• homework assignment
• whole-class review (via smartboard)

If students need a bit of a challenge, encourage them to write a different number that rounds to each of their answers.

For students who need a bit of support, consider using the editable version to modify the numbers or the place they are to round to. Additionally, invite students to reference posters or anchor charts to remind them of the rules of rounding.

Use the dropdown icon on the Download button to choose between the PDF or editable PowerPoint or Google Slides version of this resource.

Turn this teaching resource into a sustainable activity by printing on card and slipping it into a write-and-wipe sleeve. Students can record their answers with a whiteboard marker, then erase and reuse them.

Additionally, project the worksheet onto a screen and work through it as a class by having students record their answers in their notebooks.
