Students will complete 4 word problems with area and perimeter. Then there are 4 enrichment problems which instruct students to find areas of larger rectangles by splitting them into 2 smaller rectangles. A grid is shown to help solve.
Students are given task cards in which they create different shapes to match specific areas. These can be created with counters and then drawn on grid paper. Then they will label them with number cards for a quick observation by teacher.
