Design a Shape Page: Students can use graph paper to make their own shape with the given perimeter or area.
Tape Shape Page: Use masking tape to tape a large pentagon, square, and triangle in the floor in your classroom. Students can use yard sticks to measure each side and record it on the page. Once they have the length of each side they can use the measurements to compute the perimeter and area of each shape.
A fun and hands on way to practice finding the perimeter and area!
