Help your students find the AREA of rectangles with these TASK CARDS. One of the MAJOR CONTENT standards for THIRD grade is geometric measurement and the ability to understand concepts of AREA and relate area to multiplication and to addition. Students must be able to measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square in, square ft, and improvised units). In this activity, students will be asked to find the area of both rectangular and rectilinear shapes by counting square units. Students will then record their answers on a recording sheet.
Directions to the Teacher: Print and cut out cards for students. You may choose to laminate for future use. Make copies of the Recording Sheet for students. This is a great activity for a math center, math workstation, or independent practice.
