Looking for a way to give your students additional practice with area and perimeter skills? This set of 20 differentiated area and perimeter task cards increases in difficulty throughout the set.
The first cards involve counting squares to find area and perimeter. As the set progresses, students use the area and perimeter formulas to solve “open” rectangle problems. Finally, the last 8 cards have “irregular” shapes that require students to either decompose the shape into smaller rectangles or to find the area of the entire shape and "take away" a piece. What a great way for students to share their different strategies and improve their math talk!
- as a math station…
- as a class review…
- with an intervention group...or
- showcase individual cards under a document camera for a class warm up!
- Laminate the cards and encourage students to interact with them--to draw, label, count, or use any strategies they have for solving these differentiated cards.
I have included the cards in both color and gray tones for complete flexibility. A recording sheet and answer key are included as well!
