Finding Perimeter and Area on the Walls!

To make perimeter and area just a little bit more fun, one of my sweet colleagues came up with the idea of taping the walls with interesting shapes.

We had seen the original idea of taping the floor, but since we have tile walls, it seemed like it would stay better on there. 

The tape had been up for about a week and my students kept asking when they were going to get to do that! Nothing better than a little suspense to get them excited, right?

Anyway, needless to say, my students loved it!

If you want to know about using QR codes for more than just linking to websites (Hint: They can display text, too!) then check out my post over at Classroom DIY. It will be live tomorrow morning at 6:00 am CST. Let me know if you end up visiting!
Have a wonderful rest of the week!

Love that you kept the kids in suspense for a few days. They sure look like they are having fun. Great idea! Renee
