Area or Perimeter? Tic-Tac-Toe

Yahoo! I JUST finished my latest product.  This one was requested  by a customer.  It is Area or Perimeter? Tic-Tac-Toe.
Here is a description:
The purpose of this game is to practice basic area and perimeter and understand their meaning. Students will practice finding the area or perimeter when given a word problem. Students will need to distinguish what operation to use. Some questions are also finding the length of a missing side of a given rectangle or square when the area or perimeter is given.

The only materials needed to play are a pocket chart (optional) and the provided game cards.

This 13 page file includes
*cover sheet
*teacher direction
*student directions
*12 area or perimeter word problem cards
* one sheet of 6 o cards
* one sheet of 6 x cards
*Student recording sheet for accountability
* thank you page
* credit page
*copyright page

Please note that many of these problems are very similar to those in the Area Tic-Tac-Toe pack and the Perimeter Tic-Tac-Toe pack. The numbers and names are different in the problems and there is no cue “find the area” in the problem. New problems, of course, were also added.

Here is a preview:

I will be giving this packet away to 3 comments picked by a random number generator.  I will announce the winner on Sunday, April 1 (no joke)!!  Please make sure to leave your email!

I have a few more projects up my sleeve.  I want to make a fraction tic-tac-toe game and/ or differentiated word problem book.  I also want to write a short 3-4 day poetry unit integrating reading and writing. I thought this might be nice for April for Poetry month AND it is what I like to do to let off steam after testing : ).  Anyone have any requests?  What do YOU need now?



  1. My kiddos could always use some help on area and perimeter! And fractions would be wonderful too!

  3. Your give away is perfect timing! We are just getting to this! =)

  4. Yay! Love the idea of a mixed practice. Thanks!

  5. Hi Mandy:

    I'd be thrilled to win this... but I'll buy it anyway! I'll be doing this after we return from Spring Break.

    And I'd love a circumference vs area of a circle pack. We REALLY need that one because it is on The Test.

    I don't know if you have that one in your store already... but I'll check.

    I love your materials!!!

  14. This would be perfect, since we just finished our measurement unit and naturally, when the test asked students to find the perimeter, two found the area!

  15. We are knee deep in reviewing for our state test and this would be the perfect addition to my center rotations! Thanks for all of your hard work and sharing with other teachers.
