This Area and Perimeter Matching Game
will have students applying the formulas for area and perimeter of rectangles in a fun and engaging way!
This game includes TEN unique matching games with a set of 6 different rectangles for each game. Students match each rectangle with either its perimeter or its area.
I'm a big fan of games that keep kids on their toes and where the answers are not too obvious. The two most common errors when finding area and perimeter are (1) mixing up the two formulas and (2) adding the length and width, but forgetting to double them when finding perimeter. I've made sure that each of the ten games has distractor answers in anticipation of these common mistakes. I also put a square on each of the ten games. For some reason squares cause all kinds of crazy errors and kids need all the practice they can get!
