Dog Gone Again!

Here is a real-life lesson! Learners must plan the dimensions of a rectangular fence to reign in a runaway dog. They survey what shape and size fence is needed and use formulas to find perimeter and area of the fence. They explore what happens to measurements of a two-dimensional shape when it changes in some way. Consider varying the polygons to differentiate instruction.

Melanie B.
I have found some wonderful resources to use with my students through Lesson Planet. I am a former public school teacher who has taken on a private home school in order to meet the needs of those students who are not being served properly in the public school setting. I want to shift the focus from standardized tests back to LEARNING.
