Ms. Montgomery’s third grade Title I math students at Holy Cross are learning about perimeters. As a group activity, they worked on estimating the perimeter. The objective was to guess the perimeter of a desk.
We estimated the length and width, then they drew their figures on the table to see how close they came to the correct size.
The third graders practiced problem solving by
- drawing and
- checking their answers.
Estimating the perimeter, drawing and checking their answers was a cooperative effort!
