Area and perimeter: Remove the confusion when teaching these related concepts
This colorful chart is a perfect reference for elementary students who are learning the basics of geometry.
Download the sample to see what you get.
One glance helps your kids remember the key differences between calculating area and calculating perimeter in third grade. These concepts are easily confused, so this poster is a great reminder. Having a visual explanation in the room as students work on these standards is a must!
Bonus: it also shows any classroom visitors what you are working on.
You have two different options for using this anchor chart:
- The cut-and-glue kit. Print it out on standard paper, trim it a little and put it together. Laminate it and you'll be able to use it year after year!
- I also include a small version for you to 3-hole punch and put in a notebook. Your students will have access to the information even after you take down the anchor chart. Laminate and use it forever!
Of course you get complete instructions, too, as well as the applicable Common Core Standards.
The cut-and-glue version can be trimmed to fit a standard flip-chart easel… approximately 27 x 34 inches (68 x 86 cm).
