This product includes everything you need to teach perimeter to your students. This product was designed for third graders, but would work great as a review for fourth graders as well.

This product introduces students to what perimeter is and how to find the perimeter of shapes.

There is an interactive mini-lesson included that students can glue into their notebooks to help them have something to reference after learning how to find perimeter of rectangles (and other shapes!). This interactive notebook entry is "no-nonsense" which means that students simply have to cut and glue. There is no folding to make it easier for you to teach the lesson faster and to keep students on track.

In the ten worksheets included, students learn how to calculate the perimeter of shapes (mostly rectangles). I added 10 differentiated worksheets to allow you to give students the work that is best for them!

In the worksheets provided, students find the perimeter of household items, rectangles, other shapes, a zoo, find perimeter given all sides, given two sides, given one side, and more!

There is a cut-and-glue activity about perimeter on the farm where students have to glue the correct farm animal in the correct pen depending on the perimeter of each pen. Color and black and white versions are included

There is also a perimeter game included! In the game, students have to find the perimeter of each figure on each task card. They are able to use building blocks or counting cubes to help them get the "hands-on" feel they need to build their understanding of perimeter.

I have ALSO included a version of the game that includes finding both the area and perimeter of each task card. Use whichever version works best for your class!

In all, there are over 50 pages included in this product!
