This problem solving task from MATH FROM THE MITTEN for 3rd - 5th grade students utilizes a real world application to provide students with the opportunity to not only be introduced to or to deepen their comprehension of perimeter and area, but also discover a relationship between these two concepts. Students can explore this problem independently, with a partner, in small groups, as a whole class, or as a mix of these. Regardless of the grouping type, students should be given opportunity to discuss their observations. Most likely, the problem will take one class period to complete and discuss. English, Metric, and Challenge versions and Teacher Notes are included.
