Pull up a chair at our table to learn about perimeter and area in this fun song & video (and no animals on the dinner table please!) We use tables to show area and chairs to represent perimeter in this easy to understand perimeter and area introduction to 2-dimensional geometry for 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade.
Video Aligns with the following Common Core State Standards
Partition a rectangle into rows and columns of same-size squares and count to find the total number of them.
Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures and understand concepts of area measurement.
A square with side length 1 unit, called "a unit square," is said to have "one square unit" of area, and can be used to measure area.
A plane figure which can be covered without gaps or overlaps by n unit squares is said to have an area of n square units.
Measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square in, square ft, and improvised units).
Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.
Find the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths by tiling it, and show that the area is the same as would be found by multiplying the side lengths.
Multiply side lengths to find areas of rectangles with whole-number side lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems, and represent whole-number products as rectangular areas in mathematical reasoning.
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.
Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems. For example, find the width of a rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor.
