Sixth graders explore area and perimeter. In this online interactive area and perimeter lesson plan, 6th graders investigate why the perimeter of rectangles can vary considerably even when the area is held constant.

Lesson Planet has helped me differentiate my classroom as needed. I always find it easy to adapt work for struggling learners but find it more difficult to adapt work for higher level learners. By using lesson planet I get great ideas to create fun, challenging work for my higher level learners.
