There are 32 task cards on finding the area of various polygons - triangles, parallelograms, trapezoids, rectangles, and composite figures. These fit perfectly with the Big Ideas textbook for 6th grade, but can be used with any 6th grade math program. These would be great to use with incoming 7th graders, especially before the state assessment. There are 4 task cards per sheet and include a student recording sheet as well as an answer key.
Use these as bell-ringers at the beginning of class, as a math center activity, in a game of Scoot, whole class and group activity, intervention, tutoring, test prep, etc.
Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
