"Get on the floor!!!"
Students measured to find the area and perimeter of the figures I taped on the floor in the hall by my room. My co-teacher did this activity and her kids seemed to "get it" and by the way, your janitors won't be upset with you!! :) Painter's tape is great because it doesn't leave a sticky mess!

"Fold it Up!"
Students had to have a refresher lesson on 3D shapes. I did a quick review with the nets. Then the students were able to tell me how many faces, edges, and vertices there were in each shape.
