Inquiry Based Maths Assignment; Build a Paddock- Extend learning of perimeter, area and basic operations with links to the real world. Grades 3-5.
Enrich and extend your students' understanding of perimeter, area and basic operations with this simple but effective build a paddock project. Students link their learning to real life by creating a range of different paddocks for animals and calculating the cost of fencing. Perfect as an extension for those early finisher or just as an assignment at the end of a perimeter and area unit. This worked beautifully for my more advanced students who needed a deeper learning of perimeter and area.
Please use this as an inquiry based assignment, which is student led and teacher assisted. I promote a student centered learning environment and this assignment is designed to be used in this environment. Students should lead all investigations and become independent critical thinkers with this project.
Rubric is included and should be talked through with students to provide them with your exact expectations, setting the scene for an independent learning situation.
This project also comes in an 8 project bundle, saving you dollars if this is the type of learning you use in your classroom. Follow the link below:
