I use this as a station activity. I also pull this for my kids who need to practice this skill more to become masters of
Area and Perimeter. This set can be used over the course of a week.
12 task cards for finding area for multi-sided shapes (rectangles)
12 task cards for finding the perimeter of multi-sided shapes (rectangles)
12 task cards for finding the length or width when the perimeter and one side are given
12 task cards for finding the area when the perimeter and one side are given (this can be used with the previous
12 cards after they have solved for the missing side)

When I want to mix it up a bit, I will pull the odd cards from one set and the even cards from another.
TEKS Supported by adding this resource to your classroom include:
4.5(D) solve problems related to perimeter and area of rectangles where dimensions are whole numbers
4.5(C) use models to determine the formulas for the perimeter of a rectangle (l+w+l+w or 2l+2w), including the
special form for perimeter of a square (4s) and the area of a rectangle (l x w)
