Math language: teacher focus in math words , such as : measure, length, ruler,
standard units, edge, perimeter.
Teacher questions:
Can you think what is perimeter ?
Can you think now what is the total of this perimeter ?
Can you count it with me ?
Can you explain for your friends how could you measure it ?
Can you show us how did you solve this question?
Do you know what do we mean by edge ?

Video : class.( On the carpet)

Reflecting on and discussing yesterday's activity "Highlight on a poster " : small


groups of 3.(tables/carpet)

Story of the Ant : count how far the ant moved around the outside edges. (review -On the
carpet)
Using white boards to find out the premier of different shares (small example 5 * 5 ) :
( On the carpet).
Ant activity
(81/2 * 11) : pair : just to show them what is perimeter , and how to count it . (On desks)
For low ability teacher will provide easier work sheets .
Engage (warm up, review prior knowledge):

Reminding the student with Ant story .


( On the carpet). Teacher used (could use ) this method That means , just
imagine that we have an ant in the corner (choose any ) of this page and this ant
walked all the way around the edge of the paper ,until she goes back to where she
started .(follow this path with your finger ) .

Using white boards : to count perimeter .


Q:
can you count how far the ant went?
Ok. let's see to this example .
(small example 5 +5+ 5+ 5 ) : count how far the ant moved around the
outside edges.
(Teacher could change the place value .
Measuring and Finding the Perimeter .(individual on desk)

(81/2 * 11) : pair : just to show them what is perimeter , and how to count it .
(On desks)
For low ability teacher will provide easier work sheets .
If there is any student finish in short time ( high ability students ) teacher will
ask students to measure different materials in the class to find out the
perimeter of different things around them . (students will work in small groups ,
in the class )
Close (wrap up, discussion, brief review activity or assessment):
Students will reflect on the Ant activity , how to solve it .
Q: Can you explain for your friends how could you measure it ?
Can you show us how did you solve this question?
