Area and perimeter robots. Add a bit of fun and creativity when teaching area and perimeter. Students get the chance to create their own robots using grid paper, solve for the body parts' areas and perimeters, and record them in the robot's speech bubble.
Great way to help kids visualize (and remember!) the difference. Could be used for squares, rectanlges etc...too for the little ones This is great. Too bad it's math. If i had had this last semister I would have done better!
A great partner activity to use in math! Students must work with a partner in order to answer the following question:What is the largest area and longest perimeter your group can make using only one roll of toilet paper?The packet includes all of the sheets necessary to plan, complete, and display this activity in your classroom!
