### Learning Objectives

- Students will learn about perimeter using real life applications. Students will create fencing for animals and learn how many feet are needed. Students will how to find the perimeter of rectangles. Students can also compare and contrast area and perimeter.

### Guiding Ideas

Geometric measurement: recognize perimeter as an attribute of plane figures and distinguish between linear and area measures.

MGSE3.MD.8 Solve real world and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.
