Product Description
This unit includes worksheets, mini-lessons, interactive notebook pages, activities, and worksheets to help students practice finding missing sides when given the area or perimeter or when students are comparing area and perimeter.

This product includes everything you need to teach students how to find the length of a missing side when they are given the area or perimeter. It also includes how to teach students to compare rectangles and decide if they have the same area or the same perimeter (correlating with standard 3.MD.8).

This product was designed for third graders, but would work great as a review for fourth graders as well.

This product introduces how to find missing side lengths given area or perimeter and comparing two rectangles to determine if they have the same area or perimeter.

There are TWO interactive mini-lessons included that students can glue into their notebooks to help them have something to reference after learning these two concepts. This interactive notebook entry is "no-nonsense" which means that students simply have to cut and glue. There is no folding to make it easier for you to teach the lesson faster and to keep students on track.

In the ten worksheets included, students practice:
-finding missing side length given area
-finding missing side length given perimeter
-comparing rectangles with same area
-comparing rectangles with same perimeter
-drawing rectangles with same area or perimeter

There are THREE differentiated create your own mansion activities where students make their own house using the guidelines given. They have to create a house where some rooms have the same area and some have the same perimeter. The three versions allow you to give each student the version appropriate for them.

There is also a missing side lengths game called where students have the cats go against the dogs! In the game, students have to race against a partner to find all the missing side lengths before the other person wins! One person plays as the cats and the other person plays as the dogs. The first person to put all of their pets on the correct crate missing side lengths wins!

In all, there are over 50 pages included in this product!
