For the past two weeks we have been learning about area and perimeter in Grade 4. This week we worked in pairs to design a zoo. My partner was Gavin. (That’s me on the left in the picture above.) We created six animal enclosures with a given area and perimeter. Then we had to do math to figure out how many supplies we needed and how much it would cost. Then we drew it on graph paper and then added the animals. It was a very exciting math project!
