## Looking for Area Worksheets? Year 7 Maths Mazes to the Rescue!

Do your students love puzzles and mazes? Maths mazes make a great alternative to traditional worksheets while still working on those important calculation skills!

With this set of maths mazes, students will calculate the area of different parallelogram figures. Students will find the corresponding answer and work their way through the maze to reach the end. Your students may encounter some dead ends along the way, so if that is the case, encourage them to go back to a figure where there are two of the same answer choices and try a different path!

This resource comes with three different versions:

• Version One: Find the area with whole number lengths
• Version Two: Find the area with decimal lengths
• Version Three: Find the area with fractional lengths

## Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

If there are students needing a bit of a challenge, encourage them to complete the decimal or fraction version of the maze. In addition, consider using the editable version to provide a blank template for students to create their own maths maze.

For students who need support with this activity, consider assigning the first maze with the whole numbers. Alternatively, consider using the editable version and removing the answer choices with the same number that lead to a dead end in the maze.

Use the dropdown icon on the Download button to choose between the PDF or editable Google Slides version of this resource.

Because this resource includes an answer sheet, we recommend you print one copy of the entire file. Then, make photocopies of the blank worksheet for students to complete.

Turn this teaching resource into a sustainable activity by printing on thick card and slipping it into a dry-erase sleeve. Students can shade in the correct path through the maze with a whiteboard marker, then erase and reuse them.
