Standard: 4.MD.3 Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems. For example, find the width of a rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor.

Essential Question: How can I apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems?

Objective: Our objective was to use Cheez-its to answer question about area and perimeter. The objective was to see if the student could figure out what the figure would look like using Cheez-its and the formula for area and perimeter. This was a fun and tasty way to make learning fun.
