Basic Introduction to Perimeter and Area: "doodle notes" -

When students color or doodle in math class, it activates both hemispheres of the brain at the same time. There are proven benefits of this cross-lateral brain activity:
- new learning
- relaxation (less math anxiety)
- visual connections
- better memory & retention of the content!

Students fill in the sheets, complete a few examples, and color, doodle or embellish. Then, they can use it as a study guide later on.

Content includes:
- meaning of area and perimeter
- examples finding area and perimeter with figures made of only rectangles
- analogies for remembering which is which (with visual representation)

** Two options are included - The pages are identical except for example 2. Choose between a basic rectangle (great for grades 3-4) and a compound figure made of 2 rectangles (great for grades 5-6).

Reviews from other teachers:

-I love the simplicity and visuals on doodle notes. They are super student friendly and are a great resource for them to continuously refer back to.

-This is a great resource. My students wanted more tasks like this that let them get creative and "just take in the information"

-I used this resource with my self-contained geometry class. It was a good way to introduce area. My students will be able to use these notes throughout this topic.

-I used this for summer school support. I thought it was such an engaging way to get students to think about complex concepts.

-This is a great supplemental resource. The students used it to review and to refer to. They also love having the chance to make their notes their own with color and doodles. Thanks!

-These are a must have in student resources! I use this along with videos, songs, and application to round out reviewing area and perimeter in 5th grade!
