I'm a student teacher in my second year.
A way of making a bit of money to help me with my studies and share the resources I take pride in making and using in my lessons.
Thank-you for your time and any purchases you make.
Reviews will be greatly appreciated.
An interactive powerpoint and two worksheets for perimeter.
Differentiate easily by writing on the measurements of the width and length of the shapes.
I took the children outside for the first part of the lesson and they measured the football pen (in small groups) and we collectively worked out the perimeter of it. A perfect opportunity for outdoor learning.
The children engaged with this activity which is zoo themed.
An extension task idea: for them to work out the possible widths and lengths of a shape when given its total perimeter.
All children met the desired outcomes which were to be able to understand what 'perimeter' is/means and how to calculate the perimeter of 2D shapes.
