Oh no! There have been many hurricanes this week. One of them hit the National Zoo in Washington, DC!! All of the animals survived, but their cages and fences were knocked down. The zookeepers need your help to rebuild!
Each of the animal’s areas is shown below. How much fencing do you need to enclose each of the animal’s spaces?
Directions: Use what you know about perimeter to find how much fencing will be needed to enclose each space. Show the number sentence you used to find the perimeter.
Common Core: CCSS.Math.Content.3.MD.D.8 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.
