🔎 Round to the Nearest Ten with an Interactive Activity  

Are you looking for a unique way for your students to practice rounding? This interactive search-and-find math resource will keep your students engaged and learning at the same time! There are 10 different numbers that students must round to. Students must search through 7 different numbers to find which one rounds to the given number on each slide. Simply drag the magnifying glass around the screen to reveal different numbers. Only one number will round to the given number in the blue bubble. 

Through this activity, students will show they can round two-digit numbers to the nearest tens place.

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your rounding lessons.

In addition to individual student work time, use this activity to enhance learning through guided math groups, whole class lessons, or remote learning assignments. 

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners and ELL/ESL students, we have a few suggestions for keeping students on track with these concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students

For students who need additional support, provide access to previous lessons, assignments, or anchor charts. Additionally, this activity can be completed in a 1:1 setting or small group.

➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

For students who need a bit of a challenge, encourage them to come up with a list of additional numbers which round to the given number.
