Make learning about area and perimeter fun with this activity! This works great after reading aloud "Spaghetti and Meatballs for all". Students will create a shape with specific area and perimeter and record their findings on graph paper. This could be done in partners, independently, in small groups, or as a math center.
Aligns with standard 4.MD.3 "Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems".
