Printable Area and Perimeter Task Cards Using LEGO

There are so many fun ways to use LEGO's in your homeschool learning activities.

We have used them to practice grouping, alphabetical order, STEM challenge, and more!  Today we are teaming up with the Early Elementary Blogging Team and sharing a way your early elementary student can learn with LEGO's or LEGO Duplos.

Earlier this week, we explored math concepts such as area and perimeter using LEGO Duplos.

My son's 3rd Grade math curriculum has introduced both area and perimeter this year.

Area is the units of measurement inside an object.

Perimeter is the distance around an object.

Your student may enjoy these books explaining area and perimeter: Spaghetti and Meatballs for All or Perimeter, Area, and Volume: A Monster Book of Dimensions.

Using a small basket of LEGO Duplos, my son worked through the Area and Perimeter Task Cards I created.

Cool Math Activity for Kids

My son filled a shape on each task card to calculate the area and perimeter.

Using LEGO's as a unit of measurement is a great hands-on way to introduce the concept of area and perimeter to your 2nd, 3rd, or 4th grader.

To keep things simple each LEGO Duplo measured 1 unit for area and perimeter.

I laminated the Area and Perimeter Task Cards and included a card in which my son had to come up with his own shape and then calculate the area and perimeter. 

Our Area and Perimeter Task Cards were made with a lot of love and I almost shed a few tears!  

However, after all the time I put into them, I hope you are able to use them too in your homeschool or classroom.  Enjoy!
