Pete the Perimeter Robot
Today you need to draw your own robot using squares and rectangles. Your task is to find the perimeter of each shape. Perimeter is the distance (length) around the edge of the shape. You will need to measure the length of the sides of each shape. Keep your robot simple with whole cm sides to make it easier for you to work out.
Remember to find the perimeter of:
square - measure 1 side x 4 = perimeter (cm)
rectangle - measure (1 length + 1 width) X 2 = perimeter (cm)
OR (2 x length) + (2 x width) = perimeter (cm)
