This real-world project is a fun and engaging way for 4th grade students to practice using area and perimeter skills.
Students will become mathematical artists as they complete this engaging center activity! Students will design an 800 square inch piece of modern art. Students are given a set of guidelines which they must follow in order to create their art and they will need to record the area and perimeter of each section of their piece.
There are many, many ways that students can complete this project! It would even be a fun and challenging extension activity to have students complete the project multiple times, in different ways.
•Student project page (in color and black and white)
•Blank grid paper (pre-sized to match project speculations)
•3 Example projects for teacher reference (the possibilities are endless!)
Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems.
Although this center meets the above Common Core standard, this is NOT a Common Core specific skill! There is NO reference to the Common Core or the standard number on student pages, so this center is a great addition to any classroom!
