Skate Borders

Elementary schoolers explore how making different rectangular shapes with the same perimeter has an affect on the area of those shapes. Learners use the worksheet embedded in the plan to design their own skateboarding track. They use toothpicks as a unit of measurement. This hands-on activity should lead to a greater understanding of the relationship between the area and the perimeter of a shape.
