FREE Worksheets for Rounding

Some math skills you need to practice abstractly because there aren't that many real-life instances of them. Rounding is a perfect example. I suggest introducing it in Third Grade and practicing in multiple contexts (rounding with whole numbers, money, and time, as well as units of distance, mass, and capacity). Reinforce in Fourth Grade and practice with Fractions. Reinforce in Fifth Grade and practice with Decimals.

I do think that having a free account at Teachers Pay Teachers is useful for worksheets, when you want them, and so here are some links to Rounding activities that I liked. A LOT of things on that website are not high quality, sadly, so use it with caution and keep your eye open for editing mistakes.
