Area/Perimeter Zoo (an idea courtesy of Hootyshomeroom)

As soon as I saw this on Hooty's Homeroom's blog, I knew I had to do this Area and Perimeter Zoo.  Luckily, I had some large chart paper with the lines drawn in.  I cut the paper into random sizes and gave each student a piece of paper.

These were the directions:

1.  Draw a zoo animal.

2.  Include the area and perimeter in a visible place in your drawing.

And, voila, here are an example of the students' finished product:


I will add more pictures later, but this gives you the idea.  Also, please check out the examples at:
