This activity is meant to be used with TILED FLOORS in your classroom. If you do have a tiled floor, use masking tape to create different figures around the classroom. The figures should be large enough for students to walk on to count out perimeter and area measurements. Each figure should be numbered 1-10.

Students will walk around the room to find the various figures on the ground. On the recording page, they write down the area and perimeter of each figure.

Solve real world and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.
Measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square in, square ft, and improvised units).
A plane figure which can be covered without gaps or overlaps by 𝘯 unit squares is said to have an area of 𝘯 square units.
A square with side length 1 unit, called “a unit square,” is said to have “one square unit” of area, and can be used to measure area.
Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures and understand concepts of area measurement.
