Colorful visual representation of area formulas for rectangles, triangles, parallelogram, triangles, trapezoids, and circles. Great addition to the classroom for elementary education and extremely helpful for remembering area!
Minecraft Area and Perimeter Project Based Learning 4.MD.3 3.MD.8
Create name on grid paper. Figure out perimeter of each letter. Add all letters to find total perimeter. Anchored In Grade OR maybe choose one letter (first one of the name?) if you only do it in math class - otherwise it could be done as an art project!
Students will review area formulas for rectangles, parallelograms, triangles and trapezoids with this foldable that is perfect for interactive journals. Must be printed front and back. Two practice problems for each figure included for a total of eight
Students explore standard with this playlist. They will apply the area formula for rectangles with whole-number side lengths. Students will apply mathematical reasoning to find the length of a side when given the whole number area of a rectangle.
Here are two different versions of a game where students roll dice to create rectangles and then find the area. In one version students count square units. In the second version they apply the formula for area.
This 4 page lesson includes a page that details the formulas for finding the area of a square, rectangle, triangle, parallelogram and trapezoid. The second and third pages are practice problems and the answer keys are included.
Area and perimeter can be so much fun! Allow your students to develop a strong conceptual understanding of perimeter and area. This perimeter and area unit will make teaching perimeter and area a blast!
Perimeter and Area Activity for Interactive Notebook
Included is a foldable on area. Students love these type of activities because they are hands on. Students will be asked for the area formula for a triangle, square, rectangle, parallelogram, rhombus, and trapezoid. In addition, students will be given four figures and need to name the figures (isosceles triangle, parallelogram, trapezoid, and hexagon).
