Explore and Learn 3rd Grade Geometric Measurement Standards with Area Allies
Supports 3.MD.5, 3.MD.6, and 3.MD.7
Students race against the clock to draw as many Area Allies (different plane figures with the same area) as possible before time runs out. The more plane figures they draw the more points they score. The more creative their plane figures are the higher their score.
As students stretch their creative brains by creating more Area Allies, their understanding of different plane figures with the same area will increase.
This game is a stepping stone to same area and different perimeters.
You'll also love how easy it is to differentiate the game by simply using different game boards and number card sets. Instructions for differentiation
Your students will build reasoning skills while explaining how different plane figures can have the same area. No need to search for the correct reasons or worry about reasons such as “My brain told me.” Sample reasoning statements
are included with the rules. Students use these as they develop the ability to explain their thinking.
An After Game Wrap up activity is included. Students pick an area essential question to discuss. (Essential questions
come with the game.) After the discussion, students write 2 – 3 sentences to answer the question.
• Game boards
• Illustrated plays
• Assembly directions
• How to find area poster
• Copying and laminating tips
• Game boards, number cards and number card backs
Bonus Math Journal Products:
• Geometry Smart Sources
– 16 illustrated geometric measurement terms related to area and perimeters.
• 15 illustrated “I can…”
statements that correlate with 3rd grade geometric measurement standards.
