Students need practice with finding the perimeter and area of 2-dimensional shapes. These 30 cards provide varied opportunities for students to finding area and perimeter with fun and engaging cards that can be used as a center, stations or task cards.

Teaching finding areas and perimeters are important because of real-life applications. It's also important in geometry for finding volume. Later, it's helpful with higher math such as algebra. But in real-life situations, we measure area and perimeter for a variety of reasons. These 30 cards provide that practice.

This resource was updated in January 2020 with new clip art, fonts, new sections, and a non-color version.


There are 6 sections, each with 5 cards, student directions, answer key and a recording sheet. Use each section for differentiated practice, small group instruction, a math center or for math stations.

The 6 sections are:

  • Same Perimeter – students try to find the shapes that have the same perimeter, but different areas.
  • Same Area – students try to find the shapes that have the same area, but different perimeters.
  • Solve It! - students find the perimeter and area for shapes then solve a What If? question.
  • Mystery Shape – students try to guess the mystery based on perimeter and area clues.
  • Doesn't Belong - students evaluate 4 shapes and decide which one doesn't belong based on criteria for area or perimeter.
  • Decompose It! - students find the areas of irregular shapes by decomposing the shape in smaller rectangles to solve.


  • 5 cards (30 cards total)
  • an answer key
  • a student instruction card
  • a folder label or section divider
  • a superhero label or center area sign
  • a recording sheet
  • non-color version of all the above

Recognize area as additive. Find areas of rectilinear figures by decomposing them into non-overlapping rectangles and adding the areas of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.
Use tiling to show in a concrete case that the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths 𝘢 and 𝘣 + 𝘤 is the sum of 𝘢 × 𝘣 and 𝘢 × 𝘤. Use area models to represent the distributive property in mathematical reasoning.
Multiply side lengths to find areas of rectangles with whole-number side lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems, and represent whole-number products as rectangular areas in mathematical reasoning.
Find the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths by tiling it, and show that the area is the same as would be found by multiplying the side lengths.
Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.
