Teaching the area of parallelograms? Help your students better understand the standard formula of Area = Length x Width with the included video, exit tickets, task cards, printables, math centers, and assessment.
Instructional Math Video
In my classroom, I implement a Flipped Classroom, meaning my students watch a math video for homework each night. From there, they return to school ready to practice the skill together. For classrooms that are not 1:1 or cannot take technology home, you can also use these videos in lieu of a whole group lesson, at a center, for reteaching, or for morning work. This video is accessible via a QR Code at the top of a recording page designed to allow students to take notes as they watch the video.
I have included four Exit Tickets to assess your students' ability to complete this skill. I use these to gauge problem areas that need to be addressed in small groups. I have included two Exit Tickets to allow you to reassess if needed.
We all know that no unit is complete without a set of task cards. I typically use task cards in my small groups or for reviewing with the whole group. I have included twenty-four task cards with QR Codes for self-checking.
I love having printables handy to assess, reteach, or fill in when a lesson is shorter than I had originally planned. I have included two printables that require students to color based on the correct answer or scan a QR Code to match the correct answers.
Three Engaging Math Centers
I absolutely love centers in my classroom, and my students do as well. I have created three, easy to prep centers to switch out throughout the unit. All three games are shown in the preview.
After completing the unit, you'll likely need a quick assessment. I have included a ten question assessment and answer key to use throughout the unit or upon its completion.
