About a month ago…I was in need for an activity that I could incorporate area and perimeter.

So I went to my first source for finding inspiration….Pinterest!

I found this pin

Which led me to Scholastics website with several great ideas on perimeter and area

So I decided to give it a go…

I gave each student a piece of centimeter grid paper.

Let me tell you…it was hard for some of my kids.

I had to model a lot of the letters, especially K, M, and N

A few students needed extra paper.

After they wrote their names, they had to find the area and perimeter of each letter.

When they finished, I mounted them on black paper.

I had to cut and paste some of the names together.

Here they are hanging in the hallway! I love how they turned out!!

Totally doing this! 🙂 Awesome!
