Learning the area and perimeter of a rectangle can be made enjoyable by incorporating interactive games and activities.
This is a simple activity to help children practise areas and perimeters in an easy way. The activity can be carried out in the following steps :
- Instruct kids to grab 2 rectangular objects, like a book and a pencil box.
- Let them measure the length and breadth of both rectangular objects using a measuring tape or ruler and record them.
- Next, determine the area and perimeter of these objects by using the formula :
- Area = l x b
- Perimeter = 2 (l + b)
