Once your students have a basic understanding of area and perimeter, Chicken Corral is a great online resource to help your students practice their skills. This activity allows students to select a square, rectangle, or irregular shape to calculate the area and perimeter. The large, fun graphics are enticing for students and will engage them in practicing a real-world problem- building a coop for the adorable chicks!
The activity indicates when correct answers are given. There is a built in HINT which explains HOW to solve the problem, but the game does not reveal the answer if the answer is given incorrectly over and over again.
