This set of cards will help students compare rectangles with the same area but different perimeters, important for CCSS 3.MD.8. The dimensions of the rectangles have been carefully selected to encourage students to see relationships and make generalizations.
MN Math Standard: 22.214.171.124 Find the perimeter of a polygon by adding the lengths of the sides.Often times students are asked to find the perimeter of a shape. On more challenging state tests, students are asked to compare the perimeter of two shapes. This worksheet provides practice to find the perimeter, and goes one more step by asking students to circle which one is bigger.
Looking for a more engaging way to assess your students understanding of area and perimeter? Have them create a robot or their name out of grid paper (included!) and show you what they know! This activity makes for a great assessment, or even a great center during Guided Math time in your classroom!
Get your students brains going with this Buzz Brains card game activity by Project Nature-Ed! Students will be required to perform mental arithmetic and apply knowledge of times tables to solve the area and perimeter problems. Print, laminate, cut and you're ready to go.USING THE CARDSIn your classroom, use these cards at a Maths activity centre or post around the classroom for students to find and complete.
Create an original poem using a page from a book. This is such a creative idea... and I love how blocking out the rest of the text makes it look as unique as a fingerprint... like it belongs only to that child. #poetry
