The "Area and Perimeter" activity packet is aligned with the Ontario Grade 3 Mathematics curriculum expectations. As students are being introduced to measuring area and perimeter in standard units (for the most part) this packet includes activities where students measure perimeter using the centimetre and calculate area using grid paper and centimetre squares.
The expectations addressed in this packet are:
* Estimate, measure, and record the perimeter of two-dimensional shapes, through investigation using standard units;
* Estimate, measure, and record area;
* Compare and order various shapes by area, using congruent shapes and grid paper for measuring;
* Describe the relationship between the size of a unit of area and the number of units needed to cover a surface;
This packet includes lessons and activity worksheets that are designed to be hands-on and engaging for students. This packet works well with high-flying Grade 2 students or students in Grade 4 who might need some reinforcement for their area and perimeter skills.
If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know. I'd be more than happy to answer them.
