MATHS – Perimeter

The perimeter of an object is the length all the way around it!

EXTENSION 2: What room in your house has the largest perimeter?

Create a game or challenge using simple objects from around your house. Film yourself doing them, and challenge your friends to see if they can do it too!

My challenge to you – stand on one leg and balance something on your other foot! What’s the biggest object you can balance for 20 seconds?!?!!?
