This is a curios double sided foldable to teach students the formulas to find area squares, rectangles, triangles, parallelograms, trapezoids, rhombuses and kites. It includes notes for teachers. Great for INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOKS!
4.MD.3 - Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems. For example, find the width of a rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor.
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.
Worksheet | Area of Rectangles and Triangles - I | Practice calculating the area of a square, triangle , or rectangle using formulas in this worksheet. Given the area of a square, find the side length.
Nets and Composite Figures. 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.
This is a fun bundled unit (interactive PowerPoint, practice pages, quizzes, notes, etc.) that will not only teach your students the various area formulas for squares, rectangles, parallelograms, triangles, and trapezoids, but will also show them how these figures and formulas are all related.

Formula posters for area of rectangle, triangle, & parallelogram: ready to color
This product consists of (8.5x11-size) design posters of the area of a rectangle formula, area of a triangle formula, area of a parallelogram and plain posters for each of the formulas. The design posters were created to be colored, and the plain posters are available if a student chooses to create their own design.By coloring or drawing these posters, the student will better memorize/learn the formulas.
