Area Game (Bingo / Lotto) to review area of squares, rectangles and right-angled triangles: 10 printable math game boards and 60 cards (2 differentiated sets of 5 boards and 30 cards) for warm ups / starters, early finishers activities etc. Answer Keys for each set are included. Each student or pair has a board with 6 area answers on it. The cards feature 2D shapes with lengths and breadths marked on, which students use to calculate the area. Children have a board each or per pair. I recommend having one area shape card turned over at a time and all players working out if it matches the area answer on their board. Calculations can be done mentally or with a little working out.
The one-star version has more simple calculations to work out in centimeters. The two-star version has more challenging calculations and includes some conversion between centimeters and meters. From page 11 you can find black and white versions of the bingo cards. An instruction page for teachers is also included.
Print and laminate the cards and board you require. Cut out the cards. Answer keys are included for student self-checking or to help teachers assess. The cards can also be used separately from the bingo game, with individuals or pairs working out the area and checking. Students could perhaps time themselves to see how many they can correctly answer in 5 or 10 minutes. Or small groups could compete against each other to get the answer first, scoring a point if they manage it. If you don't need to use both versions of the game at the same time, I recommend printing the boards back to back to save on card stock and laminating pouches. If using both sets of cards, I suggest printing them on different colored card to help keep them separate.
