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
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.
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.
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!
Perimeter and Area Activity for Interactive Notebook These pages include: *rectangle perimeter and area formulas reminders for notebook *grid foldables for comparing rectangles with the same area but different perimeters *reflective writing prompt
Formula Review Foldable - Area Rectangle, Parallelogram, Triangle, Trapezoid
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 problems. Quick and easy prep! Just print and go!
Area of Composite Figures Pennant
Nets and Composite Figures pennant. In this collaborative activity, students find the areas of nets (rectangular prisms, triangular prisms, square pyramids, triangular pyramids) and composite figures that are made of rectangles and triangles. There is no need to know the formula for the area of a trapezoid to compute any of the areas.
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.
