Product Description

This Area of a Triangle activity uses silly - but memorable and relevant - phrasing to teach students the relationship between triangles and rectangles - they'll remember this activity! Several different formula options are available - choose the one that you use to teach.

Sometimes it’s the silly things that help keep ideas sharp and memorable!

This foldable activity - perfect for student interactive notebooks - represents a funny “love triangle” because half of the triangle is a "female" who is looking for her other half. The male half says, “You complete me!” because when they combine, they make a complete rectangle. Simple, but memorable!

In my district, depending on the grade level and depending on the students, we switch from using the formula A=length x width to Area = base x height. A third option of Area = 1/2 base x height is also included. Choose the option that suits the needs of your class!

There are 5 sets of foldable styles. They’re all very similar except for a few minor details. Choose the option that best suits your needs.

Set 1 – Full-sized foldable activity designed to fill out an 8½ x 10-inch paper. It uses the formula Area = base x height. I hole-punch the side of the first page, and students put it in their binders. Colored paper, markers, & crayons make it look fantastic!

Set 2 – Full-sized foldable activity – same as set 1, except it uses the formula Area = length x width.

Set 3 – Small-sized foldable activity – perfect for the smaller sized composition notebooks that many people use for Interactive Student Notebooks. This set uses the formula Area = base x height.

Set 4 – Small-sized foldable activity – same as set 3, except it uses the formula Area = length x width.

Set 5 - Larger sized foldable activity using the formula Area = 1/2 base x height.

“My students rated it an A+!” -Tammy Cowan

“This was a great addition to my interactive notebook. I loved how the kids could really see that the triangle was half of the square/rectangle.” –Mrs Gs Goodie Bag
