Area and Perimeter LOVE Activity
This lovely Valentine’s Day FREEBIE activity has students calculate the area and perimeter of the word LOVE. Students follow a set of directions at the bottom of the page. When the students complete the activity, they will have:
♥ Calculated the area and perimeter of each letter,
♥ Decorated the word LOVE with their own individual artistic talent,
♥ Cut a border around the word and placed their name on the back,
♥ Provided a description of the difference between area and perimeter
The letters O and V involve some diagonal lines. If students have studied the Pythagorean theorem, they can determine the side lengths. If not, they can estimate the lengths for those sides.
I also have a Valentine's Day Word Problem Scavenger Hunt available for purchase.
