Description

This set of five area and perimeter activities can help solidify your students’ understanding of area and perimeter in creative and engaging ways. These fun activities are all in alignment with the expectations for area and perimeter in the Common Core and other rigorous math standards for grades 3-4.

How do I use them?

I use these as a supplement for my textbook—and a replacement for some of the llow-level, fill-in-the-blank area and perimeter worksheets. Students love the hands-on, meaningful activities! So often we ask students to use formulas for area and perimeter but don't work to build conceptual understanding. These activities take care of that!

What is included?

  • 5 engaging area and perimeter lessons
  • All teacher directions including tons of photos to show the ideas in action
  • All needed printables and sheets
  • Work samples
  • Additional practice pages

What are the 5 lessons?

  1. An exploration activity to build the foundations of area and perimeter concepts.
  2. A cooperative challenge task to really get students thinking!
  3. An area and perimeter art activity--and all you need are some narrow strips of paper that you cut yourself!
  4. An "explain your thinking" activity where students look for misconceptions and write about them.
  5. An exploration based on the book "Spaghetti and Meatballs for All" (although the activity could be adapted to be done without the book).

What are my options?

Use as whole class activities, as stations or centers, or as options in math workshop. All of them allow students to practice their skills and deepen understanding about area and perimeter concepts. Additional practice sheets are also included for you to use if you wish.

What are teachers saying about this resource?

"My students absolutely ADORED this product, and that says a lot because they don't typically tell me how much they like a math assignment! I love how it guides students to make important connections without them feeling "guided". That wonderful lightbulb moment that we as teachers are always hoping for happened for almost all of my students with this hands-on project!"

"I'm never disappointed with a resource from The Teacher Studio. These area and perimeter activities were a wonderful resource to help my students construct their own knowledge of these concepts. The students were engaged and it was easy to scaffold for the students who needed more support. Thanks for another great product."

Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures and understand concepts of area measurement.
Measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square in, square ft, and improvised units).
Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.
Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems. For example, find the width of a rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor.
