4th Grade Real Life Math Activity - Area/Perimeter

Students will take a walking field trip to two nearby parks to determine what aspects of the park they want to include in making the school playground a better place. In this lesson, students will design a playground using manipulatives and multiple representations. Students will determine the maximum area allowed by collecting data with the teacher. The playground will include equipment with given dimensions using use-areas. Finally, scale models will be created on graph paper and a presentation will be made to teammates or classmates. #VegasPBS-Math181.69
