When you download the free preview from Perimeter Pete Mega Math Pack - Finding Perimeter For 3.MD.D.8 it includes four task cards for you to sample.
But, now, today, I'm taking it up a notch. Task cards are wonderful for all sorts of things, but my favorite is to use them as a little Brain Break, something right before lunch or as you get ready for recess. No mater what grade or what subject I taught, I've always had directional cards up for North, South, East and West. Then if a math problem had Orlando in it, we could quickly talk about that being 'south' of our town. Or in Science if we were discussing seasons, we could refer to the Northern states and all their snow being 'north' of us.Today I've included directional cards for use in your classroom.
Cut them out and stick them on your walls, then place one task card at North, South, East and West. It gets everyone up and moving, you can even say, "Everyone with red shirts head North." "Everyone with black shirts head South." to get things going. With the directional cards I've also included an answer sheet that can be used for any task cards you place at North, South, East and West!

This page also makes a terrific exit card, cut it into the four squares and pass out just one square at the end of the day or change of class!
