This center is perfect for your students to practice finding the Area and Perimeter of rectangles. You can easily differentiate your instruction with this center activity. I have provided you with two versions of this center. In the first set of task cards, the rectangles are broken up into cubes so your students can easily count to find the area and perimeter. The second set of task cards is a solid rectangle with measurements provided for two sides. This version is slightly more challenging and will require students to add the measurments together to find the perimeter and to multiply the two sides together to find the area.
Each student will fill out a recording sheet so you can easily check to see if your students are on task or understanding the skills.
