A complete lesson on perimeter, with a strong problem solving element. Incorporate a set of on-trend-minimally-different questions and several opportunities for pupils to generate their own questions. Also incorporates area elements, to deliberately challenge the misconception of confusing the two properties of area and perimeter. Activities included: Starter: A few basic perimeter questions, to check pupils know what perimeter is. Main: Pupils come up with a variety of shapes with the same perimeter, then discuss answers with partners. Designed to get pupils thinking about which answers could be different, and which must be the same. A slight variation for the next activity - pupils are given diagrams of pentominoes (ie same area) and work out their perimeters. Raises some interesting questions about when perimeter varies, and when it doesn’t. A third activity based on diagrams a bit like the cover image. Using shapes made from different arrangements of identical rectangles, pupils work out the perimeters of increasingly elaborate shapes, some of which can’t be done. Questions have been designed so that only slight alterations have been made from one diagram to the next, but the resulting perimeter calculations are varied, interesting and sometimes surprising (IMO!). Has the potential to be extended by pupils creating their own shapes and trying to work out when it is possible to calculate the perimeter. Plenary: A closer look at the impossible questions, using a couple of different methods. Printable worksheets and answers included, where appropriate. Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!

perimeter worksheet (basic)
Area and perimeter zoo project. This is great for teaching area and perimeter or as an after SATs project. The project is split into the following steps for the children: Step 1. You will need to design your zoo using the measurement requirements provided. Step 2. You will need to price up the cost it will take to build your zoo and buy the animals. You must stay within budget. Step 3. You will then work out how much it cost to run your zoo per week. You will need to look at staffing costs, feeding the animals and running costs. Step 4. You will need to price your entrance tickets. Be careful, high pricing will deter customers but low prices will not earn you any money! Step 5. Does your zoo create a profit or loss each week? Calculate if your zoo generates a profit, to do this you will need to subtract the running costs from the money you will receive from guests, the café and gift shop. Step 6. Design your zoo logo.

Area and perimeter functional skills activity. 2 floor plans are given with requests and costing. Pupils are to calculate the area and perimeter of each room and calculate the cost of tiling, carpeting, installing a fence, skirting etc. Differentiated activity: the first floor plan has squares to help by counting the boxes. The second floor plan just has measurements. SEN appropriate with clear bold writing and Comic Sans Font. Also in a word document for you to edit.
Powerpoint presentation on Area and perimeter. Goes through all the basics of working out the calculations. A brilliant lesson starter or revision pack.
Different challenges to test understanding of area and perimeter
Lesson begins with a starter and LO. Encourages discussions about 2D shapes, and working out the perimeter of a shape. Includes differentiated questions which then leads on to finding the missing lengths on the perimeter of a shape; again with differentiated questions. Concludes with Bloom's taxonomy styled questions. Please leave FEEDBACK and RATE. Cheers :)

This is a lesson that I used to teach my year 6 class about finding the perimeter of a rectangle and of composite shapes. The lesson starts off with a starter on finding the factors of a number. It then offers opportunities to discuss the meaning of perimeter and to model the method. Next, there are slides with differentiated practice questions for the class to do on their whiteboards. The answers are on the next slides so that you can quickly check their work. On the penultimate slide there is the Learning Objective and a challenge to complete once they’ve finished their work. Worksheets are differentiated for LAs, MAs and HAs. I have included the answers for worksheets too to make teacher marking easier or for you to give to your class to mark their own work!
Designed for Year 4 but can be used in other year groups, three differentiated worksheets looking at perimeter. Features a mastery challenge where children need to create shapes with a given perimeter.
Upper Key Stage 2 (KS2) Y5 and Y6 perimeter games: 10 bingo / lotto game boards and 60 cards are included in this differentiated pack. There are 5 boards and 30 cards in two sets. ALL ANSWERS ARE INCLUDED. PDF format. In Scotland, this suits Second Level Maths, Primary 6 and 7. Each child or pair has a board with 6 perimeter answers on it. The cards feature 2D shapes with the measurements of some sides marked on, which the children use to work out the perimeter. Children have a board each or per pair. I recommend having one perimeter shape card turned over at a time and all players working out if it matches the perimeter answer on their board. Lower and higher ability versions both contain a variety of squares, rectangles, irregular quadrilaterals and triangles, while the two-star version also features compound shapes. The one-star version has more simple calculations to work out in metres. The two-star version includes decimal numbers and some conversion between centimetres and metres. Answer cards are included for pupil self-checking or to help teachers assess. The cards can also be used separately from the bingo /lotto game, with individuals or pairs working out the perimeter and checking. They could perhaps time themselves to see how many they can correctly answer in 5 or 10 minutes. Or small groups could compete against each other to get the answer first, scoring a point if they manage it. If you don’t need to use both versions at the same time, I recommend printing the boards back to back to save on card and laminating pouches. If using both sets of cards, I suggest printing them on different coloured card to help keep them separate.
