This is the best Area War card game available on TpT! You get 64 cards!
This product is the best, because of the variety of area illustrations available for you, all in printable sheets. You don't have to purchase or alter real playing cards. You don't have to just hope that kids can visualize 2D figures. The game doesn't get stale, because I have included several Joker cards with special area tasks. It doesn't get better than this!
Just print the cards, have the students cut along the lines. Display the rule sheet, and you're set!
Your kids will love it, and they will practice how to calculate area in a variety of ways. Check out the images to see the wide range of questions. Please note, figures include a variety of rectangles (illustrated on grids and with labels), dimensions with no illustrations, and composite figures.
The basic rule of the game is easy. Draw 2 cards, just like in the regular game of war. Find the area of the figure on each card. The winner is the player whose card has the figure with the greatest area.
