Perimeter. Area. Volume. Which one? That one? These three concepts can sometimes get mixed-up in the minds of our students. In this download you will find 20 Poke and Check cards where students read the statement or phrase and decide if it relates to perimeter, area, or volume. The content on the cards includes units of measure, examples, definitions, and how to calculate.
If you punch holes on the paint splats, students can use this resource as a self-checking activity. OR…students can place markers/chips on the paint splats and then use the answer key to check their work. OR…these cards can be posted around the room and then students can walk-the-room and fill out the recording sheet.
Keep these cards handy as a quick review to recycle skills.
Also included in this download are three anchor mats: perimeter, area, and volume. While reviewing/learning about perimeter, area, and volume, these anchor mats can be used for students to demonstrate their learning. These anchor mats also can be used as a bell ringer activity to get students thinking and then encourage Math Talk by having students share their ideas with classmates. These anchor mats can be used as independent practice or as a formative assessment.
I encourage students to fill out the anchor mats using pictures, symbols, and words. Students can fill out the sections using their prior knowledge, as well as information learned during instruction, from picture books, from math resource books, or from online resources. This tool allows students to conceptually develop a working definition/understanding of perimeter, area, and volume.
