Introduction to Area and Perimeter

Let’s learn some basics about area and perimeter. In simple words, the area is the whole amount of space inside an object. For example, for the rectangle shown in the following image, the darker region inside the square shape is its area.

On the other hand, the perimeter is the measured distance around a shape. The following image will give you a better understanding. 

Explaining What Are Area and Perimeter


Introduction to Anchor Chart

In the previous section, you learned the basics of area and perimeter. This time, you will be familiar with a new term named anchor chart. What does an anchor chart mean? A poster used to highlight key concepts in a lesson is known as an anchor chart. The poster or chart acts as an anchor for keeping both the teachers’ and students’ gathered concepts, methods, and ideologies for solving a problem in one place.

To solve a given problem, both the students and the teacher can share and save their ideas in these types of charts.


Anchor Chart for Area and Perimeter of Triangle

We will start today’s example session with the basic form of the polygon which is a triangle. A triangle is formed with three sides and three angles. See the following chart for an understanding of how you can find the area and perimeter of a triangle.

Anchor Chart for Area and Perimeter of Square

A square is a type of quadrilateral. Here, all four sides are equal, and all the angles of a square are equal to 90°.

Area and Perimeter of Rectangle Anchor Chart

A rectangle is a special type of square where both pairs of opposite sides are equal to each other. Here, each angle is equal to 90°.

Anchor Chart for Area and Perimeter of Parallelogram

The quadrilateral whose two opposite sides are equal and parallel is known as a parallelogram. Here, the opposite angles are also equal. The sum of any two adjacent angles is equal to 180°.

Area and Perimeter of Rhombus Anchor Chart

The quadrilateral whose all sides are equal and none of the angles is equal to 90° is called a rhombus. The diagonals of the rhombus, like the above quadrilateral, bisect each other in equal portions.

Area and Perimeter of Trapezium Anchor Chart

The trapezium is also a quadrilateral. But none of the sides are equal here. Instead, only one pair of sides are parallel to each other.

Area and Circumference of Circle Fun Anchor Chart

After completing the triangle and quadrilateral, we are going to talk about circles. As the shape differs from the above ones, the trick to finding its area and perimeter is different. For a circle, the term circumference is used instead of the perimeter.
