This is a set of 40 Quiz Cards focusing on the basic skills and concepts related to finding the area of triangles, parallelograms, and trapezoids. Quiz cards are meant to be done with mental math. Students will practice multiplying, adding, and identifying key features of geometric shapes on these cards. There are several different activities you can do in your classroom using Quiz Cards and these cards will work for each activity.
These cards are easy to assemble. Print the cards on printer paper or cardstock. Cut the cards along the horizontal lines and then fold them in half so the question is on one side and the answer is on the other side.
Activity #1 - Quiz Each Other
Each student gets their own Quiz Card. Use a method for students to interact with each other. This could be mingling around the classroom, using an inside and outside circle, or some other student interaction model. Students take turns quizzing each other with their cards and then exchange cards at the end before moving on to a new partner.
Activity #2 - Team Quizzing Game
Provide a set of all 40 Quiz Cards to each group of students. It works best in groups of 3-4 students. One student fans the cards to another student who picks one from the deck. This student then reads and shows the question to a third member who attempts to answer the question. Rotate cards.
