Students will love these fun & engaging slides to practice finding the perimeter of polygons. Students begin this activity by creating equations to find the perimeter of bright and colorful rectangles and polygons. Next, your students will return lost alligators to the correct pond by finding the perimeter of each pond. Some state test practice is sprinkled in: students use side lengths listed in tables to find the perimeter.
