Area, Perimeter, and Fractions Idea

I just found this really cute idea using area, perimeter and fractions all in one. Katie, Over at I Want To Be A Super Teacher posted about an activity she did with her class.

I love the fraction idea of using 47/47 meaning 1 whole person. Sometimes they forget when the numerator and denominator are the same, it means 1 whole. I love the idea of using the area and perimeter to outline their own body image and then for each body part. What a great way to integrate! So many variety of ways to use this. And I also love that students are doing something fun, yet meaningful, without using worksheets.

Thanks Katie, for a great post!
