Do you want another way to remind students the difference between perimeter and area? This product is designed to do just that!
Areas are generally found by multiplying dimensions of a geometric shape or polygon. Perimeters are generally found by adding the outside distance of a geometric shape. Sometimes students confuse the meaning of area and perimeter.
To help students remember, these posters were created. The students may color the appropriate symbols on the posters, which will provide a visual way of remembering as well as create a memory meaning(s). If the posters are posted about the room, it will give the students a visual to refer to.
This product includes two uncolored images of the letter “P” with vertical and horizontal lines. One image has thicker vertical and horizontal lines and the other has a thicker outline of the letter “P”. Use the one you prefer.
The product also includes the letter “A” with diagonal lines extending in two directions so that the “x”s may be created by coloring.
The product may be used in several ways:
1) The students may color in the plus and multiplication symbols as desired. Of course, one or more colors may be used. Markers, colored pencils, crayons, and programs such as Paint, etc., may be used to color in the letters.
2) The students may be challenged to color in as many plus and multiplication symbols as they can in each letter.
3) The students may color the letters in as tessellation designs. There is a lot of information on the internet with respect to tessellation designs, and they are fun, relaxing, and rewarding!
4) The teacher may color the posters.
5) The posters may be given to Early Finishers, as homework, or as an assignment.
I hope you and your students enjoy and benefit from this product!
