This download contains 4 games for 2nd-5th graders who are learning to find area of rectangles and shapes made with rectangles.
This download contains 4 different math games. Each game can be assembled into file folder games or you can use the pages without the file folders. These games get harder as they go from #1 to #4 so students can work from one level to the next. They can be played with a partner or individually. In game #1 and #4, students solve to find the name of a kid detective in literature. In Game #2 and #3, children solve to find the answer to a joke.
Once assembled these games can be reused from year to year with other children who need to learn area.

Not Your Mother's Math Class
I have over 15 years experience working with elementary aged students. My specialty is making math products.
- 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.
