Product Description
This product includes discovery activities for the area of 3 shapes: triangles, parallelograms, and trapezoids.

Each activity should be done on separate days. Additional practice beyond the activity is also recommended. Teachers should provide very few hints (if any) to assist students in finding methods to solve for the area of the shapes. Beginning with triangle and moving to parallelogram and trapezoid, students should become aware of the "why" behind the formulas rather than memorizing!

These activities will likely take approximately 10-15 minutes of students working together and struggling--but in a good way! You may be pleasantly surprised at how well your students do!

This also includes an optional foldable to keep all of the formulas in one place.
