Area and perimeter

We have been learning how to find the area and perimeter of a shape. First we made some acronyms to help us remember what equation we will use.

We have used the saying "Popsicles are tasty, freezing and messy" to help us remember.  It stands for "perimeter add, then for area multiply".  We made Popsicles and wrote "AM" (area multiply) and "PA" (perimeter add) on our Popsicles. 

Now we are working on creating our own zoos and working out the perimeter and area of each enclosure.
