This is a smart board activity that teaches area and perimeter while using the children's literature story Spaghetti and Meatballs for All. It is a good introduction to area and perimeter.
If you do not have a smart board, I have this for sale as a pdf and students can work together to draw the seating arrangements and figure out the area and perimeter. Check for this item in my store.
