In this activity, students will use find the area of triangles, kites, trapezoids, squares, parallelograms, and rhombi. This ladder activity is a great alternative to a worksheet. Students will cut the problems apart along the lines and work the card labeled "Start" and find their answer on the top of another card. They tape their cards together until a chain is formed.
There are 11 problems. Students will need to use special right triangles and some properties of quadrilaterals. Some of the problems require students to work backwards. Make sure these problems are appropriate for your students - download the preview and look at the thumbnails to see problem types.
This activity can be completed individually or in pairs. An answer key and instructions are provided.
