These coloring pages are perfect for 3rd graders working on area and perimeter but can be used at other grade levels too. Students solve a problem on the page and check the coloring key, then they color the shape according to the key. One thing I love about these sheets is that the coloring part makes the assignment somewhat self checking. If students are not getting answers in the coloring key, they know something is wrong. I find this highly preferable to them completing an entire sheet incorrectly. Also, it gives students a chance to try solving a problem in a different way if they don’t get the right answer the first time.
The pages in this packet are great for early finishers, class assignments or homework (if your students have crayons at home). There are so many options included that it makes it easy to differentiate. There are 24 student pages plus answer keys.
This resource is included as part of my Area and Perimeter Bundle. The bundle contains this and 3 other items at a discounted price.
