Build upon students' knowledge of area and perimeter of rectangles with these Area and Perimeter of Rectilinear Figures Task Cards. Standards expect students to not only identify the area and perimeter of a rectangle, but also of rectilinear figures. These Area & Perimeter Task cards contain 2 sets of open-ended task cards that can be used to practice either area OR perimeter of rectangles so that you can use them to practice both skills. They intentionally do not have directions on the cards and the recording sheet. This allows you to have students practice area, perimeter, or both. With two sets, you can have one set be used for perimeter, and the other used for practicing area.
DISTRIBUTIVE PROPERTY- This product also demonstrates the distributive property as students decompose the shape into smaller parts and then add them together (area as additive). You may also be interested in my Distributive Property task cards to practice this skill without the area model.
• 2 sets of 36 task cards (one with unit squares and one without)
• Recording sheet
• Answer key
This product includes 2 sets of task cards (each set has 36 cards in it) as well as a recording sheet with a mustache theme. Students first work to identify the area and perimeter of a rectilinear figure when given unit squares. The second set has students finding the area and/or the perimeter when given measurements.
With 36 cards, these are perfect for beginning with a whole class guided practice before students continue working independently or in small groups. These task cards are perfect for Scoot and Solve the Rooms as students practice area and perimeter of rectangles.
