This is a fantastic lesson and should really help introduce rounding to students. Many students struggle with this concept, so being able to interact within the lesson should help present this topic in a way students will remember. I especially like the "erase" to find the correct answers. Students will really like that too! I look forward to trying this with my students next year. The only modifications I might make, would be to change the numbers to focus on thousands and millions since that is what our focus is when I am teaching this content. Thanks! You did a wonderful job with this lesson!

Wonderful Lesson

I really like this lesson on rounding. I especially like the page where you grouped the answer to problem and the students reveal the answer by pulling it into the colored box. I also like how you used the eraser tool to reveal the answer on the next page.

Have you considered adding learning objectives to each page? This would help the teacher and the students know what they should know and be able to do when they finish the page. If you would like to learn more about adding learning objectives to each page of your lesson, watch this brief video:

Keep up the great work!
