Students ready to start combining more than one shape and find the area of a composite figure? This activity is the one to practice with! Students can start at ANY problem and connect their pieces like dominoes. Each problem has at least two shapes (triangle, parallelogram, trapezoid and circle) to form a figure. Depending on what version you choose, circles will or will not be a part of the figures. Students will use the lengths and clues within the problems to find the area of the composite figures. Perfect self checking activity! Have students glue them onto a large piece of construction paper and display their work in the room!

2 Versions Included

*16 Problems for Area of Composite Figures (WITH circles)

*12 Problems for Area of Composite Figures (WITHOUT Circles)

--The problems are identical between the versions, but the file either includes the figures with circles or does not include the circles.
