In this activity, students explore area and perimeter, the difference between them, and how to calculate them. As an introductory activity, students are given 12 tiles and asked to design a rectangle from them and uncover the definitions of area and perimeter. Then, students are given 36 tiles and asked to create as many rectangles as possible, observing the dimensions, area, and perimeter of each. A worksheet is provided, along with centimeter and half-centimeter grid paper.
