From Kenya to Nashua: Pentominoes

Today, we extended a lesson on pentominoes that I started over the summer in Kenya and at the beginning of the year with this class. We worked with puzzle pieces called pentominoes. See the lesson in Kenya and explanation of pentominoes here. Today we worked with the pentominoes again to measure perimeter and area. You can go here and play with an interactive set of pentominoes.
