### Area Resources

Area and Perimeter Follow Me Cards: If you don't know what 'follow me' cards are, they are simple.  They are like dominoes where you have to match them together.  On each card you get a question and an answer.  The idea is that you match the question and answers up so the cards form a continuous line, or they can be read aloud and have the students stand, like a merry go round.  Here is the link to the cards: http://www.greatmathsteachingideas.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/44255740-Area-and-Perimeter-Follow-Me-Card-Sort-Rectangle-Square-Triangle.pdf

Quick Question Interface for area questions: It produces a question to calculate the areas of Rectangles, Triangles, Parallelograms, Trapezoid, Circles and Annuli (doughnut shapes).
Select which shape you would like to generate, or choose random to get any of the shapes listed.
Then calculate the area of the shape, and check your answer. http://www.interactive-maths.com/areas-qqi.html
