Scaffolded Math and Science


Students find areas and perimeters of rectangles given side lengths and of irregular shapes made of unit squares in this holiday math activity great for Christmas. Once a pennant is complete, it can be hung along a string in your classroom to show the world that, "Hey, we know how to find area and perimeter!"

Included are 32 pennants, each with an area and a perimeter question, an optional student answer sheet and an answer key. Also included are 4 blank pennants, a sheet of decorated unit squares so that you can make your own unit square problems problems (please see the third thumbnail image) and optional bows and holly that students can color and cut out to decorate their ornaments a little extra.

*For a version for older students, please see: Finding Area and Perimeter Holiday Ornaments

Each group of students can be given a set of pennants, scissors and either glue, tape or a stapler. Students can be in charge of cutting out the pennants. Groups can compete to see which group can complete the most pennants or your entire class can add pennants to one string as they complete each one. You may also choose to have your students color their pennants to add to your classroom décor.
