8 Free Printable Area and Perimeter Anchor Chart
Hello to our youngsters. I hope you are all doing well. Today we have brought you some area and perimeter anchor chart activities.
It is a common thing in geometry to find the area and perimeter of different shapes. That’s why we have come to help you in this regard. For your convenience, we have come up with today’s lesson, which includes different area and perimeter anchor chart activities.
So, let’s embark on today’s journey of exploring some area and perimeter anchor chart activities.
Introduction to Area and Perimeter
Let’s learn some basics about area and perimeter. In simple words, the area is the whole amount of space inside an object. For example, for the rectangle shown in the following image, the darker region inside the square shape is its area.
On the other hand, the perimeter is the measured distance around a shape. The following image will give you a better understanding.
Introduction to Anchor Chart
In the previous section, you learned the basics of area and perimeter. This time, you will be familiar with a new term named anchor chart. What does an anchor chart mean? A poster used to highlight key concepts in a lesson is known as an anchor chart. The poster or chart acts as an anchor for keeping both the teachers’ and students’ gathered concepts, methods, and ideologies for solving a problem in one place.
To solve a given problem, both the students and the teacher can share and save their ideas in these types of charts.
8 Exciting Area and Perimeter Anchor Chart for Little Champs
In the following discussion, you will find eight fun and exciting activities for learning area and perimeter anchor chart. We have included all the daily used shapes for learning as well as some irregular shapes. So, without any further delay, let’s start our journey.
Anchor Chart for Area and Perimeter of Triangle
Let’s start with the most basic form of a polygon. Thinking what it might be? Yes, a triangle. A triangle is formed with three sides and three angles. See the following chart for an understanding of how you can find the area and perimeter of a triangle.
Anchor Chart for Area and Perimeter of Square
A square is a type of quadrilateral. Here, all four sides are equal, and all the angles of a square are equal to 90°.
Area and Perimeter of Rectangle Anchor Chart
A rectangle is a special type of square where both pairs of opposite sides are equal to each other. Here, each angle is equal to 90°.
Func Anchor Chart for Area and Perimeter of Parallelogram
The quadrilateral whose two opposite sides are equal and parallel is known as a parallelogram. Here, the opposite angles are also equal. The sum of any two adjacent angles is equal to 180°.
Area and Perimeter of Rhombus Anchor Chart
The quadrilateral whose all sides are equal and none of the angles is equal to 90° is called a rhombus. The diagonals of the rhombus, like the above quadrilateral, bisect each other in equal portions.
Area and Perimeter of Trapezium Anchor Chart
The trapezium is also a quadrilateral. But none of the sides are equal here. Instead, only one pair of sides are parallel to each other.
Area and Circumference of Circle Fun Anchor Chart
After completing the triangle and quadrilateral, now we are going to talk about circles. As the shape differs from the above ones, the trick to finding its area and perimeter is different. For a circle, the term circumference is used instead of the perimeter.
Area and Perimeter of Irregular Shapes Anchor Chart
Finally, you are going to talk about some irregular shapes. How will you find out their area and perimeter? What technique should you apply? All are given in the following image.
