Practicing Perimeter

We did a really fun activity in math today!

We were practicing finding the perimeter of a shape.  We used straws cut into 2, 4, and 6 inch pieces, as well as chenille stems cut into 2 inch pieces.  The students used the straws as the sides and the chenille stems as connectors to create shapes.


They then had to draw and name the shape, label the sides, and write a number sentence to find the perimeter.


The activity was very hands-on, and my students got practice with finding perimeter AND identifying shapes!

Until next time,
