Perimeter Project

      Perimeter Project!! I was ahead of our curriculum map, which is a great place to be, so we took a day to reinforce perimeter instead of pounding forward. It was a simple and quick activity.

Step one is to hand out grid paper.
Step two is to tell the students to make "graffiti" on their paper of their first name.
Step three they draw a rectangle box around their graffiti name.
Step Four they find the perimeter by counting the units on all 4 sides and then add it up!

There is nothing fancy to it, but they LOVED it!!!
They came out pretty cute too...take a look: 

Then we sang this song that has been floating around all over the internet! The song is sung to "The Farmer and the Dell."
