Round numbers to various places while finding your way through this set of 5 math mazes.
Practice Rounding Numbers
With this math worksheet bundle, students will work their way through 5 different mazes. To find their way through each maze, students will round each number to the given place, designated in the page’s upper right-hand corner. Students can practice the following rounding skills:
- Rounding to the nearest 10
- Rounding to the nearest 100
- Rounding to the nearest 1,000
- Rounding to the nearest whole number
- Rounding to the nearest tenth
Students will round each number within a rectangle and follow the path with the correct answer. Students can shade the path with colored pencils, crayons, etc. But watch out! Some dead ends are waiting for your students in some of the mazes.
If you are looking to incorporate a little competitive fun into your classroom, consider assigning this resource to a pair of students. When someone says, “Go!” students can race each other through the maze and check their answers at the end with the provided answer key.
Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding
In addition to independent student work time, use this worksheet as an activity for:
- Guided math groups
- Lesson warm-up
- Lesson wrap-up
- Fast finishers
- Homework assignment
- Whole-class review (via smartboard)
Extend this resource by having students create their own rounding maze with at least 12 numbers to round. Students can trade mazes with a classmate as well.
If there are students who need a bit of support, encourage them to reference previous assignments, posters, or anchor charts as a means of reference. Additionally, this worksheet can be completed in a 1-on-1 setting or with a small group of students.
