Clip to ScrapBook #5

I have the Cheez-Its idea in a Super Fun Math Book I got many years ago. I use it to PRACTICE area, not learn it, so I'm not positive it would help you with actually teaching the concept.

If you are interested in what it specifically says in that book, I would have to bring it home from school and then share it with you. PM me if you want me to.

I have also given students 1 cm grid paper and had them write their spelling words, in the little grids, then draw a box around them and figure out their area and perimeter. But again, this is to practice, not introduce the concept.
