PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This file contains all you need for a fun filled class period calculating perimeter, circumference and area of geometric figures including squares, rectangles, triangle, trapezoids, parallelograms, and circles. It is a multiple step hands on activity in which students will determine the appropriate formulas provided a given shape either from memory or a formula chart. Then, they will calculate the perimeter, circumference, or area. Once they have done the calculations, they will cut out the 12 shapes with the completed formulas and glue them to the correct solution on the template.

This can be done alone and taken as a grade, or used as a partner activity. Either way, it will serve as a great review for shape identification, correct formula selection and calculations.

I have included two versions of the activity:
The first is just the labeled shape and a line for the students to write in the correct formula.
The second contains the actual formula (possibly used for students that need modifications).

ENJOY!

I have also posted a similar activity to this that covers surface are and volume:

Or, you can have both as I have also posted a bundle and am selling it at a discount!
