This is a lesson exploring area and perimeter.
In this lesson the students use area and perimeter calculations to test a statement. Hence they go through the process of collecting evidence and identifying patterns in the data to come up with a conclusion.
The lesson is organized in the 5 E format starting with a very short Engagement. Exploration is finding the answer to the question, Explanation is led first by the students explaining what they had found, and then by the teacher revealing the answer to the question through probing questions. The Elaboration is based on an observation made i the data and allows students to come up with multiple responses. The Evaluation is a short application of the main concept to a different situation.
The Lesson is planned in detail to help the teacher implement it successfully in the classroom.
Includes a PowerPoint, if needed, and other resources mentioned in the lesson.
