After students have become familiar with pentominoes, they will complete the task cards using a set of pentominoes and record their answers.

Level 1:
Solve for the perimeter values of the 12 pentomino tiles. Solve for perimeter values of 2 pentominoes put together.
Level 2:
Solve for perimeter values of 3 or more pentominoes put together.

Level 3 Challenge: For an extra challenge for your visually spatial students, encourage them to find solutions to one of the pentomino challenges, then find the perimeter.

This pack includes:

* Drawing Pentominoes Activity
* Pentominoes Challenge Activity Card
* Level 1 Task Cards with answer sheet(18)
* Level 2 Task Cards with answer sheet (12- including 1 summative writing)

Their task is to create a brochure to highlight examples of chicken coop sizes that can be made with a given perimeter. Each level of difficulty has a different given perimeter. All students will be determining area.

* Level 1: Students are only working with rectangles.

* Level 2: Students work with polygons including up to 2 rectangles.

* Level 3: Students work with polygons including up to 1 rectangle. They will also determine the number of chickens that can live in each given coop.

There is a short writing component as well on the brochure. Brochures are printed 2-sided.
