Math Robots

Mrs. Jackson's 2nd grade class has been working on learning area and perimeter. This week we created "robots", then measured the area and perimeter of them.

Students were given grid paper, with the instructions to create a robot, then measure the area and perimeter. We also compared how different shapes could have the same area or perimeter. They had a lot of fun creating these, and it is a great way to assess their understanding of the concept, as well as provide a somewhat "real world" connection.
