Perimeter and Area Real World Practice
Direct students to the Area and Perimeter folder in Schoology, then the the Flocabulary Area and Perimeter Rap Song page. Remind students to use the "Next" button to proceed through the activities in order, but that they may revisit resources on previous pages as needed. Students should use headphones while viewing the initial video, but can work in pairs for subsequent activities. Circulate through the room as students view the video.
Area and perimeter are mathematical calculations that help us in the real world. Weather we are trying to figure out if a piece of carpet will fit in our bedroom or if a puzzle will fit onto a table, these two calculations will give us the information that we need! Watch the Flocabulary video below to refresh your memory of how area and perimeter are calculated. You may replay the rap as many times as you need to and may want to take notes as you watch to help you remember how to calculate both area and perimeter.
2 Access Prior Knowledge
Circulate as students watch the LearnZillion videos, answering questions and assisting as needed. The digital worksheet from LearnZillion lesson 13. Applying Area and Perimeter will need to be uploaded to Schoology for students to access prior to the lesson. Assist students in downloading the worksheet to their iPads, then opening and annotating it using the PDF Cabinet app as needed. It is assumed that students have had practice with using this app prior to the lesson.

Watch these LearnZillion videos to review how to determine perimeter and area. Later you will complete some Practice/Check for Understanding activities to see what you know! You do NOT need to watch every video. They are here to help you, but please enter your real first name so I can give you credit for the videos that you view. You may revisit these videos as often as necessary!
3 Practice/Check for Understanding
Monitor students as they practice using the online resources, assisting as needed. These BrainPop activities do NOT require a paid account.
Use the links below to practice calculating Area and Perimeter. Take screenshots of your final scores to submit to the "Check for Understanding" Assignment so I can see what you’ve done. You may take the quiz and play the game as many times as you want to get your best score!
4 Skill Application & Wrap-Up
Observe students as they complete the Zoo Designer activity. Assist as needed.
You will now get to apply what you have learned by acting as a zoo designer. It will be your responsibility to design fenced in areas for each animal based on the information you will be given. Get it right and the animals will live happily in the zoo. Get it wrong and you will sadly be fired. The zoo can't have animals running around, after all! Take a screenshot of your final certificate to show that you successfully completed the activity and submit to to the Zoo Designer Assignment in Schoology.
