Area and perimeter project based learning! Students have
fun demonstrating their math knowledge of area and
perimeter while designing a school carnival.
This project based learning resource is themed around
students planning the design of an outdoor school
carnival. Their school principal is requesting that they
use their knowledge of area and perimeter to plan the
carnival. The principal provides guidelines (worksheets)
listing the requirements for the games, entertainment and
additional carnival areas. The main portion of the
project requires them to use their knowledge of area and
perimeter to make their carnival blueprints.
Differentiated Learning Options. (Two versions of area &
perimeter calculation sheets)
• Basic Project: These pages have the length and
width filled in on the charts. Students calculate area &
perimeter. Best for beginning learners.
• Advanced Project: These pages do not have the
length and width filled in on the charts. Students
calculate length, width, area & perimeter. This is the
more challenging version so it is most appropriate for
learners with a solid grasp on basic spatial and
measurement concepts in geometry.
Contents include examples, instructions for students,
cover page, graph paper, worksheets for games,
entertainment and other carnival areas, as well as
worksheets for optional ELA extension activities. The
extension worksheets included are for writing
instructional directions, writing a persuasive school
announcement and creating a tri-fold brochure.
