Product Description
This set of 10 problems focuses on the concept of perimeter and area. Students are asked trap the Thanksgiving turkeys by drawing a polygon around the outside. By doing this, the students are helping the farmer catch his Thanksgiving turkeys.

There are two different versions included here. One with small grid paper for advanced students and one edition with larger grid paper for grade 3 (possibly grade 2 if students are ready for perimeter).

This is also available in the Ultimate Thanksgiving BUNDLE by Clicking HERE!

Students then need to figure out the area and perimeter of the shape that they drew around the turkey. This is perfect for homework, classwork, or just a fun Thanksgiving review of area and perimeter.

Also included is a problem solving strategy called CUBES. This is given in the form of a notebook page that students can place into their interactive math notebooks.
C- circle the numbers
U- Underline the question
B- Box the key words
E- Evaluate
S- Solve and check

Lastly, there is an interactive notebook page on the concept of area and perimeter.

Perfect for math centers, small group math, or just a general review and practice of perimeter and area.

Thanks for looking,
