How to find a perimeter of a shape


Todays maths we are learning about measuring. We learnt that 10 miliermeter can make one center meter and 100 centermeter can make one meter. We used a small and bendy piece of harakeke to mesure the curves and a rule to measure the straight lines. We measured the harakeke against the ruler and added all the measurements we came up with to work out the perimeter of the shape we created. This shape by the way was called “THING”. It was good fun!
