Area Foldables and Models

Boy!  What a day!  I don't know about you but cramming in all this math when our state test (FCAT for those of you in Florida) is 14 teaching days away is a nightmare.  My team and I are on fast forward at this point.  At any rate, I wanted to share these 4 (yes, I said four - I must be CU-Ray-Zee O.o) foldables/models I did with the kiddos this week (three of which we did today).

For those of you who use the 4th grade Go Math text, we are just finishing Chapter 10 on area.


Started off with vocabulary... this is my model.  The kids had to make up their own examples in their foldable.



Today we did these three (in this order - it really was a Math-a-Palooza today *phew*)

Cut and paste with pictures from the internet...




Finally, we compared measuring tools.  Notice how we made the text from smallest to largest ;)  Then the kids searched the classroom for examples to write with each tool.



 Tomorrow's the test... we shall see how they do *fingers crossed*
