Coordinates and Perimeters

Here is a lesson containing a great activity based on coordinates, and the perimeters of shapes created using a given set of coordinates. After youngsters creat a shape on a grid based on some coordinate pairs, they must identify which shape they have created, and calculate its perimeter. This is actually more of a worksheet than a lesson, but there is so much math learning going on, I believe it can stand as a lesson.

I was at a crossroads trying to think of a new… interesting… active way to introduce and teach the different types of economic systems. I turned to Lesson Planet and entered “Economic Systems” into the search tab and was inundated with resources and lesson plans and ideas… the kids loved the lesson I modified for them and still ask when we are going to do another lesson like that “Paper Airplane Company” one. Thanks Lesson Planet.
