Perimeter and Area Robots

One of my favorite perimeter and area tasks is my perimeter and area robot activity.  I used the task as a performance assessment, and it is a huge success every year.  I love activities where my students get excited and have the opportunity to apply all they have learned.  I wanted to share some of my students' creations!

I always start the activity by pretending that our class has received an official letter from NASA. I make a big deal out of opening the envelope. I act very secretive, because of course, it's a top secret mission, and everyone always gets so involved in the project. Since I originally created this pack, I have since added multiple versions for easier differentiation. I have this activity on TpT as an individual file. It's also a part of my Fun With Area and Perimeter Pack.

The task is available at the following link.

It is also included in my Fun With Perimeter and Area product.

I love these! I bought your A & P product and did the robots with my kiddos this week and they had so much fun! I also did a blog post about it and linked back to your blog! This is such a fun, creative idea!
