Surprise! Measures of area and perimeter do not need to be confusing! This miniature lab teaches area and perimeter concepts through hands-on activities, problem-solving, and a card game that can be played at three levels. With the task cards, learners use square tiles and rulers to measure the area and perimeter of square-based shapes. Later task cards present challenges like assembling tiles into a mystery shape with a given area and perimeter. In the card game, players pair shape cards with matching area/perimeter cards. Fence It In is a powerful measurement resource! Includes 9 double-sided task cards, rulers, square tiles, and 50 cards. For 1-4 players.
