Description

Engage your kiddos with this real-life math activity that involves students placing animal crackers in "cages of toothpicks" and then finding the various perimeters. Students will love being their own zookeeper!

Check out the preview for a complete understanding of the resource!

Objective:

The goal is for students create several cage designs that can house as many animals as possible using very little toothpicks.

This Product Includes:

✓ 2 different versions of directions for students with different requirements.

✓ Discover the pattern or rule sheet.

✓ Critical thinking and questions sheets.

✓ The cost of the cages at different lengths (feet and cm).

✓ Being given a perimeter and having to create a variety of cages equaling that.

✓ Answer keys included.

Pick and choose pieces or complete the entire project over a few days!

Printing Notes:

While I recommend laminating materials for future use, it is not necessary. These materials print just fine in grayscale. I would suggest printing "as image" to avoid any potential issues.

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Generate a number or shape pattern that follows a given rule. Identify apparent features of the pattern that were not explicit in the rule itself. For example, given the rule “Add 3” and the starting number 1, generate terms in the resulting sequence and observe that the terms appear to alternate between odd and even numbers. Explain informally why the numbers will continue to alternate in this way.
Identify arithmetic patterns (including patterns in the addition table or multiplication table), and explain them using properties of operations. For example, observe that 4 times a number is always even, and explain why 4 times a number can be decomposed into two equal addends.
Solve real world and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.
