Area, Perimeter, and Fractions Idea

I just found this really cute idea using area, perimeter and fractions all in one. Katie, Over at I Want To Be A Super Teacher posted about an activity she did with her class.

I love the fraction idea of using 47/47 meaning 1 whole person. I love the idea of using the area and perimeter to outline their own body image and then for each body part. What a great way to integrate! So many variety of ways to use this. And I also love that students are doing something fun, yet meaningful, without using worksheets.

Here are Area and Perimeter packs with some fun ideas. A ton of activities to reinforce area and perimeter measurement.

I wish I could say I came up with this fabulous idea, but I'm pretty sure I found it on Pinterest somewhere. :) I just did this activity with my math students this year and the finished products were darling again!

    1. Regardless of where you found it, It's a fabulous activity. Your pictures were great too! It really showed how the activity played out. I had to post something about it. It's too bad we don't have the original owner of this. Thank you so much for sharing! =)
