Area of Parallelogram Lesson Plan

Name: Julimae Balisacan Date: February 27, 2018

Lesson Title: Areas of Parallelograms

Grade Level: 6th Subject: Math

Learning Outcome(s): Standard(s):

Students will be able to find the area of CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.G.A.1
parallelograms. Find the area of right triangles, other
triangles, special quadrilaterals, and
polygons by composing into rectangles or
decomposing into triangles and other
shapes; apply these techniques in the
context of solving real-world and
mathematical problems.
Differentiation Strategies:
Various Grouping; Hands-on Activities; Additional time to complete work

Teaching Targets (timing, activity types, purpose, kinds of grouping)

Time: (the increments Activity/Strategy - the Purpose - the why Method - the how
of time depend on the what (whole group, small
age of students - times groups, partners,
are just examples) individual, etc.)

Students were able to find the area of a parallelogram because the formula to finding the area is
similar to the area formula of a rectangle (base x height OR length x width). It was good practice for
students to work with their peers which I think they benefited from. Although there were a lot of
things going on, the students were able to understand the concept well.
