8 Area Task Cards!
If you are teaching area, preparing for a test, and/or want to have a great conversation about area, then these cards are for you!
These cards are great for TEST PREP and to use as a TEACHING TOOL in the classroom. Cards are differentiated and vary in difficulty.
These task cards lead to great conversations about area and lead to a greater understanding about the concept!
Make several sets of task cards and laminate.
Distribute cards and allow students time to think how they could determine the area of the polygon before using writing tools. Encourage them to think of more than one way to find the area.
Group students and allow them time to discuss their different strategies on determining the area of the given polygon. Ideas might include partitioning the polygon, counting squares, length x width, and more!
Then, encourage students to use writing tools to calculate the area, and show their work! I allow my students to use dry erase markers on the cards once I laminate them.
Recording Sheet and Answer Key are provided.
Have fun! My students love the challenge of these cards, and often request them!
