Rounding Numbers Worksheet

Are your students in need of some additional practice with rounding? If students understand the concept of rounding with smaller numbers but need to work on rounding with larger numbers, you have come to the right place! Teach Starter has created a rounding worksheet suitable for years 4 and 5 to practise this important maths skill.

With this worksheet, students must answer 12 questions where they round to a given place. Students will practise rounding to the nearest:

  • tens place
  • hundreds place
  • thousands place
  • ten thousands place
  • hundred thousands place.

Additionally, students will answer two word problems at the bottom of this worksheet, which they must use their understanding of rounding to complete.

An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy!  

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

In addition to independent student work time, use this worksheet as an activity for:

If students need a bit of a challenge, encourage them to write a different number that rounds to each of their answers.

For students who need a bit of support, consider using the editable version to modify the numbers or the place they are to round to. Additionally, invite students to reference posters or anchor charts to remind them of the rules of rounding.
