The purpose of this game is to practice basic area and perimeter and understand their meaning. Students will practice finding the area or perimeter when given a word problem. Students will need to distinguish what operation to use. Some questions are also finding the length of a missing side of a given rectangle or square when the area or perimeter is given.
The only materials needed to play are a pocket chart (optional) and the provided game cards.
This 13 page file includes
*12 area or perimeter word problem cards
* one sheet of 6 o cards
* one sheet of 6 x cards
*Student recording sheet for accountability
* thank you page
* credit page
Please note that many of these problems are very similar to those in the Area Tic-Tac-Toe pack and the Perimeter Tic-Tac-Toe pack. The numbers and names are different in the problems and there is no cue "find the area" in the problem. New problems, of course, were also added.
That is a great idea! I will put it on my to do list! Thank you for the idea! I have also had requests to add MORE cards so that students can play the game more often and I will also do that (eventually!). The blank cards are an easy fix though!!! Thank you!
Hello! You may need to contact TpT if you are having a downloading issue. Do you have Adobe installed? It is a pdf file and this may be the case. It is easy to get Adobe Acrobat- it is a free program. Does that help at all? If not, please let me know!

My class loves this! So far we've played students vs. teacher. They can't wait to play with a partner! Thank you for a great resource.
