Area of 2D Shapes - so many rules and formulas to remember!

Use our Posters Showing the Area of 2D Shapes in Your Classroom!

We designed these posters as a guide for learning the area of different 2D shapes. Specifically, students will learn the formulas for the:

  • area of a square
  • area of a triangle
  • area of a rectangle

  1. Print the posters on paper or thick card and make a classroom display for students to reference when doing independent work.
  2. Print the posters, slip them into a clear sleeve, and use them in your guided groups as a reminder.
  3. Print the posters on A5 card, laminate and combine them on a ring as a reference tool when learning about area.

We’ve also come up with bonus ways to turn posters into interactive tools that really make your lessons stick!

💻 Provide posters as digital resources for virtual students.

🧠 Test students’ memories by showing them the poster, then hiding it and having them tell you what they remember.
