### Lesson Objective

SWBAT round whole numbers to the nearest thousands place.

### Lesson Plan

Materials Needed: DN Worksheet, white board, dry erase markers, IND Practice Worksheet
Vocabulary: rounding, estimation, actual, rounding off

……….
Do Now (3 -5 min): Teacher hands out rounding worksheet for students to complete independently.

Opening (2 -3 min): Teacher quickly reviews answers to the Do Now and then says, “Yesterday, you learned how to round numbers to the nearest hundreds place. By the end of today’s lesson, you are going to learn how to round numbers to the nearest thousands place.”

Direct Instruction (10 min): Teacher begins, “Today we are going to learn how to round numbers to the nearest thousands place. Remember that place value is very important whenever you are talking about rounding numbers. Let’s quickly review the place and value of each of these digits before we begin. [Teacher writes 1, 458 on the board] and asks:

Who can tell me which digit is in the ones place?
Who can tell me which digit is in the tens place?
How much is it worth?
Who can tell me which digit is in the hundreds place?
How much is it worth?
Who can tell me which digit is in the thousands place?
How much is it worth?

Teacher continues, “You all are awesome! Ok, so we are ready to learn about rounding to the nearest thousand. To round to the nearest thousand we need to look at the numbers in the ones, tens, and hundreds place. If the numbers in the ones, tens and hundreds place are between 0 and 499, you round down, which means the number in the thousands place stays the same. For example 1, 424 rounded to the nearest thousand would be 1,000. If the numbers in the ones, tens and hundreds place are between 500 and 999, you round up, which means the number in the thousands place is rounded up to the next even thousand. For example, the number 1, 888 rounded to the nearest thousand would be 2,000. Watch as I round a few numbers.” The teacher writes the following numbers on the board and rounds each to the nearest thousand:

7,442 = ________ [7,000]
1,913 = ________ [2,000]
5,326 = _________ [5,000]
7,061 = _________ [7,000]
1,128 = _________ [1,000]

Guided Practice (8-10 min): The teacher continues, “Ok, so now it is your turn! We are going to practice rounding numbers to the nearest thousands. I am going to write ten problems on the board for us to complete together, then you will get a chance to show of your skills independently.  Let’s get started”

2,569 = _________ [3,000]
8,971 = __________[9,000]
7,972 = ________ [8,000]
993 =  ________ [1,000]
3,836 = _________ [4,000]
4,061 = _________ [4,000]
3,124 = _________ [3,000]
6,804 = _________ [7,000]
7,310 = _________ [7,000]
8,099 = _________ [8,000]

Independent (10 - 18 min): The teacher hands out the IND worksheet. Students are asked to complete the worksheet independently and turn it in.

Closing (2-3 min): Teacher calls the attention of the students back toward the front of the class to quickly review the answers to the Independent Practice worksheet/ ask what we learned about.
