Are you tired of drawing shapes on your white board or SMART board, labeling the sides with random numbers and asking your students to calculate the perimeter? Need more authentic practice and higher level thinking scenarios and questions? Well stop your search!
Here are 30 task cards that are a mixture of open ended, multiple choice, measuring, and missing dimensions questions that require higher level thinking skills.
Students will be asked to: find mystery sides of shapes then calculate the perimeter, choose formulas that match given scenarios, use a ruler to measure shapes and calculate perimeter and solve word problems. All questions relate to real-world scenarios that require students to find perimeter of shapes.
All you need to do is print, preferably in color, cut, laminate and shuffle cards. Then the options are endless:
•Have your students complete the cards at a center and record their answers on the recording key provided. Or get up and move by placing them around the room and playing a game of SCOOT.
•Use as a ticket out the door, picking one out of the stack to complete as a quick check or spiral throughout the year.
•Assign a sheet for homework for the night.
•Even use as an assessment or intervention
•Great for fast finishers too!
This mixture of task cards is perfect for centers, independent practice, small group work, intervention or just as a spiral review game. Recording sheet for students provided as well as an answer key for teacher quick check or student self-check.
