Are you looking for a hands-on approach to apply understanding of area and perimeter? This area and perimeter word problem challenge has three levels of difficulty for third or fourth grade students. Students will design chicken coops for some fall farm fun!
Students role play that they work for an advertising firm that is creating a brochure for a farm equipment distribution company that sells chicken coops.
Their task is to create a brochure to highlight examples of chicken coop sizes that can be made with a given perimeter. Each level of difficulty has a different given perimeter. All students will be determining area.
* Level 1: Students are only working with rectangles.
* Level 2: Students work with polygons including up to 2 rectangles.
* Level 3: Students work with polygons including up to 1 rectangle. They will also determine the number of chickens that can live in each given coop.
There is a short writing component as well on the brochure. Brochures are printed 2-sided.
