Arguing over Area

With the help of the Area Officers and Perimeter Patrol, you learners will develop a better understanding of area and its relationship to perimeter. First, they view a video clip from Cyberchase, and then they visit a website to test their area and perimeter skills as they build cyberspace ships. After the computer game, they create paper models of their spaceships. How fun! The game link is old, so you must search the PBS website to find the game.

Lesson Planet has helped me find many ideas for supplementing the curriculum that is provided to me by my school district. I have found many creative, hands-on activities that make my science curriculum "pop".
