We have been investigating how we find the Perimeter and the Area of a space.  Mrs Kaye needed help building a dog pen for her sister's new puppy.  She had 40 metres of fence, each one a metre long.  In groups we had to build a pen that gave the puppy the largest area to run around in.  We used ice block sticks to help us - each stick = 1 metre.  Then we had to remember the formula for Perimeter to work out which shape was the largest.  It was so much fun!

This is a long run for the puppy!

How will we work out the perimeter?

Here is our working out.

Even Joy could fit in the pen!
