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!!
