GREAT introduction or additional practice with perimeter and area! With these activities students can use 5x5 geoboards to learn about perimeter and area. Students are directed to create shapes with given perimeters and areas, and draw what they've created on geoboard models on the page. Students also create their own shapes and tell what the perimeter and areas are. Explanations and examples are given at the top of each page.
*If you don't have your own geoboards or are looking for an online activity a great one to use is http://www.mathlearningcenter.org/web-apps/geoboard/
