Practice are and perimeter by Designing a Leprechaun house with a "greenprint" for St.Patrick's Day. Students use this creative and seasonally relevant assignment to practice area and permeter as well as literacy connections! With a modeled sample, lesson materials, and a scoring rubric, this math activity is all you'll need!
Students design a house on "graph" paper and must determine the area and perimeter of each room.
*2 samples/models(one simple & one advanced) for the area & perimeter activity & recording sheet (These samples can also be used with blank recording sheets for students to practice calculating before they begin working!)
*3 "box" sizes on "greenprint" page for differentiation
*3 ideas for extension activities (materials enclosed)
-Use a partner's paper to solve for area and perimeter
-A letter to a leprechaun
- Draw and write about inside a room in the leprechaun house
