This interactive math lesson gives students the opportunity to practice rounding numbers to the nearest ten. The students will round numbers up to 99. Several question formats are presented in this entertaining, yet educational, math game. One math question asks students to drag and drop numbers into the correct column to show which numbers round to 70 or 80, for example. In another type of question, students need to fill in a number that rounds to the nearest ten for the given number. Another question format will help kids with rounding to the nearest ten by asking which multiple choice answer rounds to the number given. There are also word problems in this lesson that ask students to round to the nearest ten for a given number.
Students are given a limited amount of hints in this rounding math activity. The hints remind students to look at the ones place. If the number is five or more, round up. If the number is less than five, round down. When a student has used up all his or her hints, the hint window will display this in a message.
Perhaps one of the most invaluable components of this rounding lesson for kids is the detailed explanation that appears when a student gets the answer wrong. Each explanation tells students to look at the ones place to determine whether to round up or round down. If the question is a multiple choice question, the explanation breaks down which answers round up and which ones round down.

You have the opportunity to try out “I Know It” before you purchase a membership. You can preview any lesson for free; however, the number of questions you have access to is limited until you become a member of the website.
Did you know that “I Know It” also features administrative tools for teachers? That's right! Teachers can create student logins, view their students' scores for completed lessons, adjust lesson settings, and access student progress reports.
Teachers also have flexibility in assigning lessons based on the the individual needs and skill level of their students. That's because grade levels are alternately referred to as “Level A,” “Level B,” “Level C,” instead of “1st Grade,” “2nd Grade,” “3rd Grade,” etc. Students won't know the lesson they're working on is associated with a specific grade level, and teachers can make sure the skill is suited to the child's ability.
We've categorized this math activity for rounding to the nearest ten as a Level B lesson. It may be appropriate to use at a first grade, second grade, or third grade level.
