# Nice idea for finding area and perimeter using Legos.

• This is much more interesting than simply finding the area of a random box. Adding purpose to learning is so important. From here, students can find the perimeter of items in the class or at home by measuring. #kids #learning #teaching #school #math

Math with legos

I like the idea of teaching area & perimeter of a rectangle all in one short lesson with Wheat Thins and Pull-Apart Twizzlers because I can more easily differentiate inside (area) vs. outside (perimeter) by referencing Wheat Thins vs. Twizzlers.
