Area and Perimeter

In our Area and Perimeter lesson plan, students learn how to find the area and perimeter of various shapes using given formulas. Students learn how to do this for both squares and rectangles and complete practice problems.

Our Area and Perimeter Lesson Plan introduces the definition of area and perimeter, as well as the formulas for calculating the area and perimeter of squares and rectangles. With ample opportunities for experiential practice and additional resources to ensure understanding, students solidify the conceptual and formula differences between calculating perimeter and computing area. Students are asked to find the perimeter and area of various things, including floor plans and randomly sized rectangles. They are also asked to solve word problems that are asking for perimeter and area without visual guides.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define area and perimeter, identify formulas for, and compute the area and perimeter of squares and rectangles.

    Area and Perimeter

    Like previous lessons it was organized to help the teacher apply it to their class using a structured approach that allows for modifications whether adding or removing details. Can’t stress how convenient it is to have an answer key.

    Wonderful Lesson Plan

    I highly recommend Clarendon Learning. As a teacher adjusting to this new distance learning, they had an area lesson plan that fit almost exactly what I was looking for. I will be returning for more inspiration!
