Rounding of numbers to the nearest 10 and 100

Hi Everyone,

Today, I am going to share some of my work on the topic Rounding to the nearest 10 and 100. Typically rounding is introduced in Grade 3. The supporting common core standard is: 

Math 3.NBT.A.1: Use place value understanding to round whole numbers to the nearest 10 or 100. 

Rounding of a number means replacing it by another number that is approximately of equal value but making it simpler. This is an important skill for students to build on their number sense. For some students, performing rounding of numbers can be quite confusing. My motive was to make something simple, interactive and yet effective to help the little learners understand the concept of rounding.

I am a big fan of Anchor Charts which are created during the instruction of topic. These goes a long way in reinforcing the unit and students can reference it back too!
