  • Area of a square
  • Area of a triangle
  • Area of a rectangle
  • Area of a rectangle
  • Area of a parallelogram 

How to Make the Most of Your Area of 2D Shapes Poster Set

  1. Print the posters on paper or card stock and make a bulletin board display for students to reference when doing independent work.
  2. Print the posters, slip them into a clear sleeve, and use them in your guided groups as a reminder.
  3. Print the posters on letter-size paper, slide them into a clear sleeve and hang them on a ring as a reference tool for a learning center. 

We’ve also come up with bonus ways to turn posters into interactive tools that really make your lessons stick! 

📂 Place copies in students’ homework folders for reference. 

💻 Provide posters as digital resources for virtual students. 

🧠 Test students’ memories by showing them the poster, then hiding it and having them tell you what they remember.
