Do you need the perfect TEK-aligned activity for your geometry & measurement math centers this year? We’ve got just the fit! Whether you're introducing perimeter at the beginning of the unit or reviewing how to measure the volume of a rectangular prism while preparing for the STAAR test, our professionally edited questions will help you to confidently prepare your students with 180 task cards that are attractively designed, standard-focused, and thoughtfully differentiated.
As a bonus, each set includes full page digital images of each illustrated task card which can be used to upload onto platforms you may be using already - like Google Classroom or Nearpod.
We cordially invite you to take a look at the PREVIEW above by clicking on the green button above this description.
✔ 180 uniquely illustrated task cards with additional sets that have colorful border options.
✔ 180 full page images that can be printed out, used in whole-group instruction over a smartboard, or uploaded to google drive where you can share them digitally with your students.
✔ 6 Printable title pages with "I Can Statements".
✔ 6 printable labels with "I Can Statements".
✔ Creatively designed answer keys which match similarly designed recording sheets for easy grading.
✔ Multiple versions of recording sheets. One version saves paper while the other version allows more room for showing work.
✔ A click and learn FAQ document which provides helpful answers to questions you might have about your set.
The Differentiation Advantage
This set of task cards has been organized in a way that allows for seamless differentiation. Cards #1-10 are the least difficult in each set and can be given to any students who might be struggling to gain confidence. Cards #11-20 are just slightly more challenging, while the last 10 questions require a bit more critical thinking being primarily long-form word problems.
Methodology - How We Designed the Problems
Each question is aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) state standards, and are specifically designed to meet documented student expectations for that standard. The questions are patterned on previously released State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) Math Tests. The questions can be used for guided practice and independent practice.
*Careful attention has been put into each question so they won't be so challenging as to discourage your students, while still being rigorous enough to prepare your students for testing and assessment.

Included in this task card set are the following TEKS Standards:
TEKS Standard 5.4G:
The student is expected to use concrete objects and pictorial models to develop the formulas for the volume of a rectangular prism, including the special form for a cube (V=l x w x h, V= s x s x s, and V=Bh).
I can use concrete objects and pictorial models to find the volume of rectangular prisms and cubes.
TEKS Standard 5.4H:
The student is expected to represent and solve problems related to perimeter and/or area and related to volume.
I can solve more complex single-step & multi-step perimeter, area, and volume problems by understanding how they relate to each other.
TEKS Standard 5.5A:
The student is expected to classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy of sets and subsets using graphic organizers based on their attributes and properties.
I can classify and group two-dimensional shapes according to their properties and attributes.
TEKS Standard 5.6A:
The student is expected to recognize a cube with side length of one unit as a unit cube having one cubic unit of volume and the volume of a three-dimensional figure as the number of unit cubes (n cubic units) needed to fill it with no gaps or overlaps if possible.
I can determine the volume of a 3-D figure by adding up the total of cubic units (a cube where all side lengths =1) in that figure.
TEKS Standard 5.6B:
The student is expected to determine the volume of a rectangular prism with whole number side lengths in problems related to the number of layers times the number of unit cubes in the area of the base.
I can measure the number of cubic units in a 3-D Rectangular Prism whose length, width, and height are whole numbers.
TEKS Standard 5.7A:
The student is expected to solve problems by calculating conversions within a measurement system, customary or metric.
I can figure out what measurement system and unit to use to solve problems involving measurement.
