This activity is designed to be used with a geoboard (11 x 11 peg). An alternative for geoboards is included in this package (index size cards with 11 x 11 geoboards). Students explore the meaning of perimeter and area by constructing polygons on the geoboard. The activity can also be used with Communicator Clearboards, available from Educator's Outlet and a copy of a student grid.
This activity also includes 2 additional pages of explorations about area and perimeter and a page of 5 additional activities that can be completed on area and perimeter.
