• ### Activity 1 / Weather Patterns Worksheet

If your kids are already interested in the weather and its patterns, use this interest to teach them some more mathematical skills. In this Weather Patterns worksheet, you will help your kids track the recent weather patterns by rounding to the nearest 10 for each type of weather the community has seen recently. Then, if the number in the ones place is at 5 or greater than, your kids must round up to the nearest 10. Help them figure out and circle the correct answers.

• ### Activity 2 / Bee Maze Rounding Worksheet

Help the bee make it home to his hive! This adorable bee maze rounding worksheet will stretch your child’s thinking by tasking him or her with rounding up. While working through the maze, kids round up to 50 or 60, evaluating each and every number, moving the bee along the path towards his hive!

• ### Activity 3 / Rounding Numbers Up Worksheet

What does your little one want to be when they grow up? Perhaps a science researcher? If yes, then your child and the person in this worksheet have a lot in common. The science researcher in this printout observed animals in the rainforest and recorded exactly how many she saw of each type of animal. Your kids can help her by rounding up the total number for each animal she recorded up to the nearest 10. Then, help them circle the correct answer for each type of animal.
