Can rectangles with a different area have the
same perimeter as this rectangle?
In this lesson you will learn that
rectangles can have the same
perimeter but different area by
building rectangles and organizing
information in a chart.
Let’s Review
Perimeter tells us the distance that goes around a
polygon.

Extension Activities
Sally asked her father to build a fence around her backyard.
Her father bought 24 feet of fencing. Use square tiles to
make the rectangles and then make a chart to find the
biggest area for Sally’s backyard.
Extension Activities
Using square tiles, create as many rectangles as you can with
a perimeter of 36 units. Circle the rectangle with the biggest
area. Create a chart to show the different areas for the given
perimeter.
Extension Activities
This rectangle has a perimeter of 18 units. Fill in the
chart to show the possible areas.
