These task cards give students the chance to practice finding the area of irregular shaped figures by decomposing large figures into smaller rectangles and squares.
This set contains student directions,16 task cards, and a student answer sheet.
An answer key is also provided with detailed answers showing students possible ways of how they could decompose the figures to find the area.
This task aligns perfectly with CC 3.MD.7 c-d.
Decomposing figures to find the areas is new in many states for third graders, and finding resources for it has been a challenge for me, so that's why I decided to make my own!
