Parallelogram and triangle cut and stick activities to link the formula for their areas to the formula for area of a rectangle.
Pupils cut a parallelogram and transform it into a rectangle of dimensions b x h, showing it is the same area as the rectangle
Pupils cut a copy of triangle with base b and height h and arrange the pieces to make a rectangle around the original triangle to show that the rectangle formed has twice the area of the triangle - so the area of a triangle is 0.5 x b x h
Area, triangle, Parallelogram, Cut and Stick.
Shapes and lines that first need to be torn carefully, then the same shapes/lines cut carefully. Lastly the children were asked to use both skills to make identical pictures, then asked to say which they preferred and why.
<p>A collection of fictional postcards from different places around the world. Each postcard gives some information about the place which can then be followed up with research. A nice activity is to look at lots of examples of postcards and then for pupils to design and make their own.</p>

Looking for a model of a short story plot triangle model for your students? Would any of your students benefit from having a graphic organizer of a short story plot triangle? Would you like to save time reinventing "the short story plot triangle" for every short story discussed? This resource uses the Most Dangerous Game, a classic suspense short story read in so many middle and high schools. Teach the short story triangle using The Most Dangerous Game. Students read the story, learn about the specific aspects of a short story plot triangle, and then can independently use the information in this resource for additional short stories comprehension! <br />
The second file contains the actual text of the short story, The Most Dangerous Game. Since this classic suspense fictional short story is available online for free, I downloaded, formatted so students can annotate and have an easier time reading the text. The price of this multisensory resource if for the power point only - the story is free and available by "googling "free text of The Most Dangerous Game." It is my hope that providing it would save you time! <br />
Additional strategies are included to support student development beyond the short story triangle such as a K-W-L graphic organizer, and a mini lesson on what strategies are and why strategies are important for readers to use when reading. For many students, unless explicitly explains and discussed, the connection is not made and students may continue to struggle year after year due to their uncertainty of what the literacy elements are to the short story triangle! <br />
