Solve for perimeter values of 3 or more pentominoes put together.
Level 3 Challenge: For an extra challenge for your visually spatial students, encourage them to find solutions to one of the pentomino challenges, then find the perimeter.
This pack includes:
* Drawing Pentominoes Activity
* Pentominoes Challenge Activity Card

Students role play that they work for an advertising firm that is creating a brochure for a farm equipment distribution company that sells chicken coops.
Their task is to create a brochure to highlight examples of chicken coop sizes that can be made with a given perimeter. Each level of difficulty has a different given perimeter. All students will be determining area.
* Level 1: Students are only working with rectangles.
* Level 2: Students work with polygons including up to 2 rectangles.
* Level 3: Students work with polygons including up to 1 rectangle. They will also determine the number of chickens that can live in each given coop.
There is a short writing component as well on the brochure. Brochures are printed 2-sided.
In this pack, you have two different learning styles to choose from:
Students will be planing 6 rectangular garden plots using either grid paper (visual/spatial) or math manipulatives (kinesthetic). Both activities center around the same skill, but in slightly different ways.
A writing page at the end gives students the opportunity to write a letter to the Lucky Leprechauns explaining where they think they garden should be planted.
