Find the Perimeter: Worksheet # 1

There are five perimeter worksheets/printables in PDF format to print individually or for a classroom of students. Perimeter is a concept that begins in non standard units as early as JK/SK, grade 1 and two before moving to standard units in elementary and middle grades. Perimeter refers to the path or distance that surrounds a two-dimensional shape. For instance, if I have a rectangle that is 4 units by 2 units, here is the calculation I could use to find out the perimeter. I could ad 4+4+2+2, every measure around the rectangle to come up with 12. Add up each side which will give you the perimeter.

Let's say I have a circle. I would ask my students how I would be able to get the perimeter of my circle and hope that somebody would come up with the idea of getting a string and placing in around the circle and then measuring the string. Sometimes a few probes would be important. One of the common misconceptions for young learners is that they will often confuse perimeter and area. Hence, it's really important to help them distinguish between the two. You'll notice this misconception when they start giving answers to a perimeter question that is actually the area or when you give a question about area and in return an answer of perimeter is given. This is really just a confusion between the actual meanings of area and perimeter.
