This worksheet is designed to replace a lecture on calculating the area and perimeter of geometric shapes.
I start out class with a 15-minute "mini-lesson," giving my students some basic examples of what today's lesson will be about (I hand out one page with three basic shapes on it, and we do them together). Once the mini-lesson is over, I have them get to work within their groups on this worksheet.
Students will need centimeter rulers for this activity; I provide my students with centimeter rulers, left over from prior year state testing.
I use this activity within cooperative groups, and I circulate to make sure they are getting the purpose of the questions.
The file includes spiral review problems.
This worksheet is intended to be written on directly.
Please download the pdf preview file first, so you can see exactly what's included; the product file is a word document, which you may personalize for your students.
Immediately before this worksheet, I use the mini lesson named 'Measuring Area and Perimeter Spring 2014 notes' (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Measuring-Area-and-Perimeter-Spring-2014-notes-1267762
), and immediately after this worksheet, I use the assessment named 'Geometry Individual Test Radicals Proportions Similarity Trig Spring 2014' (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Geometry-Individual-Test-Radicals-Proportions-Similarity-Trig-Spr-142-versions-1267777
