Basic Introduction to Perimeter and Area: "doodle notes" -

When students color or doodle in math class, it activates both hemispheres of the brain at the same time. There are proven benefits of this cross-lateral brain activity:
- new learning
- relaxation (less math anxiety)
- visual connections
- better memory & retention of the content!

Students fill in the sheets, complete a few examples, and color, doodle or embellish. Then, they can use it as a study guide later on.

Content includes:
- meaning of area and perimeter
- examples finding area and perimeter with figures made of only rectangles
- analogies for remembering which is which (with visual representation)

** Two options are included - The pages are identical except for example 2. Choose between a basic rectangle (great for grades 3-4) and a compound figure made of 2 rectangles (great for grades 5-6).

Recognize area as additive. Find areas of rectilinear figures by decomposing them into non-overlapping rectangles and adding the areas of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.
Multiply side lengths to find areas of rectangles with whole-number side lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems, and represent whole-number products as rectangular areas in mathematical reasoning.
Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.
