Product Description
This activity is an engaging way for students to apply their understanding of perimeter. It can be completed individually, with a partner, or a small group. It may be used as a standalone activity, Math centre, or an assessment.

Students will name their amusement park, then design the layout of their park on grid paper. The grid paper is included in this document. Then they will place the rides, food court, and washrooms in their park, all of which have a given perimeter. For example, the washrooms must have a perimeter of 18m. They can determine the shape and length of the sides for their washroom, as long as it has a total perimeter of 18m.

They may also add more rides/attractions if they have enough space left on their grid paper and wish to do so.

NOTE: This activity can be easily adapted to area. Students could design each part of their park to have a given area instead of a given perimeter.

I hope your students enjoy this activity as much as mine did!
