Hands-on Activity One: This would be great for learning centers. Or, it could also be used a part of my unit. Students could practice making their "shape cities" out of legos.
A game for 2 or 3 players. Each player chooses a color pencil they will use in the game. Players take turns rolling the dice, using the numbers that they rolled to draw the perimeter of a rectangle or square & writing the area in the middle of the shape. Game ends when players run out of room to draw. Winner is the player who has used the largest area/most squares.
