Real Life Perimeter & Area

Now that you’re an expert in Area & Perimeter, prove it, by following these steps. 1. Find an object in your house that looks is either a square, rectangle or triangle. (This could be a table, picture frame… anything that’s possible to measure easily!) 2. Find a ruler or ask someone you know for a measuring tape and measure your object. If you’re reeeeally stuck, you can measure using your hands. 3. Take a picture and upload here. 4. Edit the photo to include three things: a. The length and with labeled clearly. b. The perimeter of the object. c. The area of the object. P.S. Don’t forget to end your measurement in cm, m, inches or hands – whatever you’ve chosen to measure with! P.P.S. Yes, I took this desk from school. :)
