Perimeter is the distance around a shape. Since we'd been studying polygons, this seemed like a fun way to review polygons and perimeter together.
Teams of students were given 12 pencils (not sharpened). It was originally supposed to be toothpicks, but I couldn't find the box I used last year.
Students were to create polygons using these rules:
- Closed shape
- No slanted/ diagonal lines
- No re-dos
- Perimeter HAS to be 12. No more, no less.
Let the creativity begin!
Basically the same shape, but done by 2 different groups. :)
Everyone did a great job! I was impressed with how focus they stayed. 45 min of straight creating and documenting!
Awesome job, Soldiers!
