Ahoy, Matey! Want some perimeter fun for your pirate friends?
Play Walk the Plank alone or in partners!
Students are given a copy of a ship (to decorate as well as add sky and sea) and a copy of the planks (with instructions).
1. Measure the planks' perimeters and write on the "board."
2. Color and cut the planks to look like wood.
3. Add sea and sky to the ship picture. Decorate the pirate ship.
4. Carefully fold and glue the blanks above the fold line to the ship so that they stick out when hung.
A fun extension... solve for the area of each plank using the length and width found!
Makes a cute ship display!
