Lesson Plan Description

This half day of lesson plans is broken down into 3 separate segments (30-60 minutes each) addressing Numbers and Operations in Base Ten: place value rounding to the nearest tens place or hundreds place. Students will learn key place value vocabulary, take helpful notes for reference, round three-digit numbers using both a rounding rule and a vertical number line. They will also complete independent practice of concepts and play a game to reinforce the concept of rounding and play a rounding game.

  • Segment 1: students will use place value understanding to round whole numbers to the nearest 10’s place on a vertical number line.
  • Segment 2: students will use place value understanding to round whole numbers to the nearest 100’s place on a vertical number line.
  • Segment 3: students will demonstrate their understanding of rounding while playing a card game in pairs or small groups.

These lessons can be taught over the span of a half day or you can use the lessons independently, broken up over several days.
