In this simple area and perimeter math game, players compete to conquer the most territory on the board. This fast paced game builds conceptual understanding of area and perimeter with concrete modeling (tiling). To play:
- Each player rolls 2 dice and uses the numbers to draw a rectangle on the grid. For example, if you roll a 6 and a 4, you can draw a rectangle that is 6 squares long and 4 squares wide.
- Find the area and perimeter of the rectangle by counting unit squares and write it inside.
- Players continue conquering territory until time is up or until they can no longer fit any more rectangles on the board.
- At the end of the game, players total the areas and perimeters of all their territory and the player with the most territory wins!
Make copies of the game board for each pair and have them use two different colors to mark their territory. Or, laminate copies of the game board and use different colored dry erase markers for a re-usable option.
Three ways to win: largest area, largest perimeter, or most rectangles!
This activity is also included in an 8 day print and go area and perimeter unit for 4th grade available here!
