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.

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

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."
