Help! We just received a new shipment of animals that we need to move into our zoo! We have one plot left in our zoo, and we need to fit 6 new animals on it! Some of the animals need a big area to move around, and some do not. That’s not all! We also need to build a fence around each animal’s pen, but I’m not sure we have enough fence to go around! Can you help us figure out how much area our new animals will need, and how much fence we will need to go around each animal?
This activity can be used whole group, or even in a station! It is a great hands on activity to help students learn the general idea of area and perimeter, with some extension activities! Your students will love building their own zoo on a real blueprint!
