This fun activity asks students to apply their knowledge and understanding of area of perimeter in a creative way. The paper explains that students need to design a robot to explore space -- but it has to be the right size to fit in the space ship. Dimensions for area and perimeter are given. As students cut out their pieces, glue them on construction paper and display on a bulletin board!
You can use any size graph paper (with my class, I use 1/2 inch graph paper).
This product includes two color copies and an ink-saving black-and-white copy.
