These coloring pages are perfect for 3rd graders working on area and perimeter but can be used at other grade levels too. Learners solve a problem on the page and check the coloring key, then they color the shape according to the key. One thing I love about these sheets is that the coloring part makes the assignment somewhat self checking. If students are not getting answers in the coloring key, they know something is wrong. I find this highly preferable to them completing an entire sheet incorrectly. Also, it gives students a chance to try solving a problem in a different way if they don’t get the right answer the first time.
The pages in this packet are great for homeschoolers, early finishers, class assignments or homework (if your students have crayons at home). There are so many options included that it makes it easy to differentiate. There are 24 student pages plus answer keys.

- Math can and should be fun.
- Learners need lots and lots of practice with manipulatives and hands-on strategies before they can solve abstract problems.
- We need to let children explore concepts and not force them to memorize formulas to solve problems.
