Use this product as a tool to reinforce and practice the concepts of area and perimeter. Students will complete 16 task cards of varying difficulty and check their answers with an answer key.
Some task cards are very straight forward, while others require critical thinking and problem solving skills. The cards could be divided into 2 leveled groups in order to provide differentiated practice.
I like to use this product as a center. I put it together as a pocket folder center. I glue the cover sheet onto the front of the folder. I glue the directions above the left inside pocket and put the task cards on a ring in the left pocket. Then I put the answer sheets in the right pocket. The answer key gets glued onto the back of the folder so that students can check their work when they are done. I laminate the folder so that it will last longer.
I hope you enjoy this product! You can find more like it at my store: Over the Rainbow in 4th Grade.
