Check out the one day review unit my third grade class used recently! We pretended to be secret agents with various tasks throughout the day. I started by using white string and black lights to decorate the classroom like lasers. Next, we used a finger scanner app (free download) to enter the classroom.
Kids had four tasks to complete by the end of the day.
There are 13 different area tasks that can be mixed and matched for different tasks as you see fit. You can also use the extra activities as a way of differentiating for your students.
Task 1: Irregular Area
Using floor plans in odd shapes, determine the total area of each by creating rectangles. Determine which area is larger.
Task 2: Around the Room
9 area cards. Put them around the room. Kids have one answer sheet with 9 boxes. Answer the problems in the corresponding box. These problems are basic area problems like find the area when given the length and width, find the area of a grid, and find the missing side when given the area and one side length.
Task 3: Blueprints
Finding the area of a rectangle. Finding the area of the smaller rectangle inside of that. Finding the shaded area by subtracting the first two.
Task 4: Riddles
Students write their own area problems and trade with a friend. There are also two word problems that can be used for students.
Included: images to decorate folders for the tasks, secret agent badges, 13 total area tasks
