In this farm themed activity students will continue to help the farmer's wife to find the perimeters of the animal pens.
Students will learn that when finding the perimeter of rectangles they can multiply the width by 2 and then the length by 2 and then they can add the two products together to find the perimeter. [So a rectangle with a length of 3 and a width of 5 would be represented as (2 x 3) + (2 x 5)]
This activity includes:
An introduction page for students modeling the skill
A perimeter activity page for practice
An answer key
I also offer a discounted perimeter pack featuring multiple perimeter activities.
