Last month, we had been working on identifying area and perimeter in math. So, I thought a fun activity to wrap up our unit could be this Cheez-It activity I saw on Pinterest. I modified it a tiny bit for my kids but they definitely enjoyed it nonetheless. I mean, workbook activity vs. Cheez-Its?! My activity was the winner.

Here’s how to go about using these yummy crackers as part of your engaging math lesson.

## Supplies Needed:

- Cheez-Its
- Area & Perimeter Handout
- Grid Paper (optional)
- Container (for extras)

Give your students a handful of Cheez-Its…I gave each student a plastic bag with 25 Cheez-Its inside. Then have your kids create figures with the Cheez-Its. As they make a figure, they can draw it on some grid paper or on a napkin on their desks.

Then have them identify the perimeter and area of each shape. How easy is that?!

I let my kids eat the little snack after work is complete. I bought a Costco pack for my class of 25 and had half a bag left over! You could easily buy 2 boxes at the grocery and it would work just fine! What are some fun ways you teach area and perimeter?
