This site provides a simple activity to practice rounding whole numbers based on a tie-in to Jan Brett's book, Comet's Nine Lives. There is a simple explanation of rounding before beginning the game. Each seashell contains a 2 digit number with 2 choices for the correct answer. If the correct answer is chosen, a sand dollar is earned, an incorrect response gently prompts the player to try again.

tag(s): estimation (46), rounding (22)

In the Classroom
