Area/Perimeter Game

A couple of my classmates did a presentation on teaching Area and Perimeter using manipulatives. There were iPads, geoboards, and chart paper used to complete the game. My group used chart paper and we took turns rolling dice. The numbers that were rolled, we used as the dimensions for a rectangle and then we calculated the area. After a few turns, we multiplied the numbers rolled on the dice and used that to calculate the area (some non-rectangular shapes) and then drew our shapes using that area (not considering the perimeter).  At the end of the time allotted, we added up each of our areas to determine the winner (whoever had the most square units).
