Perimeter

We have been learning about perimeter. We placed string around the outside of a shape and cut it when it met the point at which we had started. We then gathered these pieces of string together and compared them to see which objects had the longest perimeter and which had the shortest. Our next step was to use a ruler to measure the pieces of string to find out how long the perimeters were in cm.
