PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Help students get the big picture of how to decompose complex shapes with these work mats! Simply print and go!

When working with area and perimeter it's important that students know how to break down a complex shape into squares, rectangles, right triangles to find the area. These mats also make it so students can easily recognize how to find the perimeter of a shape that might not have side with a labelled measurement. This product includes:

15 problems
recording sheet (2 types--full page and 1/2 page)
labels (perfect to place by problems if they just need to find just the area or perimeter)
handy dandy answer key


This is great for a whole group activity or instruction, partner work, small groups, resource, or review! If you want these more in a task card size simply print 4 to a page! Just print and laminate (or place in page protectors) so students can decompose the shapes with a visa-vis. It's also a perfect activity to get your students up, moving, and doing math together.

★Be sure to check out the preview above!★
