## Area and Perimeter Math Centers

Practice 3rd grade geometric measurement standards with these FUN & ENGAGING area and perimeter math centers! This area and perimeter activity pack includes 9 hands-on activities, games & task cards to fit the needs of all learners. Students will use the distributive property to find the area of an L-shaped figure, engage in a Connect Four area & perimeter game, find the length of a missing side of a figure, create their own farm map, use multiplication to find area, and much more!

Each activity is hands-on and interactive for students making them perfect for collaborative learning and math centers. Most activities include easier and challenge sets to make differentiation a breeze! Activities target 3rd grade measurement standards: 3.MD.5 , 3.MD.6 , 3.MD.7 , 3.MD.8

## What’s Included: Clip the Area: This activity is designed to help students find the area of a square/rectangular shape using unit squares and/or square inches. Students will find the area of the shape and clip the correct area using a clothpin. (Color + B&W Version) Differentiation includes shapes with unit squares and shapes with length and width inch measurements. Build the Area: Students will represent each area by creating a figure on the mat using unit squares. Students can use manipulatives such as Cheese-its, Starbursts, or simply draw on the map using an Expo marker. (Color + B&W Version) Differentiation includes cards with areas written on them (EX: 24 square inches) and multiple choice cards with multiplication sentences. (EX: 6 x 4= 24 square inches) True/False Area Sorting Sorting: Students will look at area word problem and decide if the multiplication or addition sentence represents the area of the figure by sorting them into ‘true’ or ‘false’ bags. (Color + B&W Version) Differentiation includes shapes with unit squares and shapes with length and width inch measurements. Area & Perimeter Review Board Game: Students will solve a variety of area and perimeter measurement-related questions to move across the game board. Questions consist of finding the area of a shape, finding the missing length, finding the perimeter, L-Shaped figures and much more! Questions are self-checking making it the perfect addition to your math centers! (Students can flip cards over to read the answers) (Color + B&W Version) Find the Missing Length of a Figure: Students will find the missing length of a figure when given the perimeter. Challenge cards require students to find the missing length and the perimeter. (Color + B&W Version) Find the Area of an L-Shaped Figure using the Distributive Property: Students will use the distributive property to break apart L-shaped figures to find the total area. (Color + B&W Version) Differentiation includes shapes with unit squares and shapes with length and width inch measurements. Use a Ruler to find the Perimeter: Students will measure the sides of different figures to find the perimeter in centimeters. Students will use Velcro to add the figure card inside the correct area mat.(Color + B&W Version) Perimeter & Area Connect 4 Game: Students will find the area or perimeter of different shapes and compete against other classmates to score four in a row. (Color +B&W Version) Build a Farm Map: Students will use the dimensions on the Farm Catalogs to build their own farm. They will choose 5 areas from the Farm Catalog and draw each space on the farm map using the side lengths or area listed. (Color +B&W Version)

Direction sheets (for teachers & students), response sheets, and answer keys are included for all activities!
