Cheese-It Area & Perimeter

So I am in no way of taking credit for this idea, but I just had to share.  We actually did this activity a while ago, but I'm just now getting pictures off of my iphone.  What a brilliant idea to use Cheese-its to practice area and perimeter.  All you need is a few boxes of Cheese-Its, some newspaper, and copies of the recording sheet (click to download).  Here are some adorable pictures of my class during this activity!






I just wanted to share!  I hope everyone had a great weekend!
