Measuring Perimeter

Have your class practice measuring the perimeter of various objects using this resource. Fifth graders place various-sized polygons in order (from largest to smallest). They use non-standard measuring tools to estimate the distance around objects. Then, they record their findings using a table. Finally, they make predictions about the perimeter of an object and use a ruler to determine the perimeter.
