THIRD TERM

WEEK 4

PRIMARY 3

THEME – PRIMARY MEASURES

**TOPIC – PERIMETER **

**LEARNING AREA **

1. Introduction

2. Perimeter of a Triangle

3. Perimeter of a Square

4. Perimeter of a Rectangle

5. Lesson Evaluation and Weekly Assessment (Test)

**PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVES **

By the end of the lesson, most pupils should have attained the following objectives –

1. define perimeter.

2. find perimeters of regular figures in metres and centimeters by measurement.

3. identify perimeter of regular shapes in their environments.

4. realize that perimeter is the total distance round a particular shape.

**RATIONALE**

Perimeter is the distance round a particular shape. The perimeter of a rectangle or square is to add all the four sides. The concept of perimeter will enable the pupils to understand and appreciate the distance around a particular shape or object.

**ENTRY BEHAVIOUR **

The pupils can add four (4) numbers together.

**INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS**

The teacher will teach the lesson with the aid of cut-outs of squares, rectangle, triangles and teacher’s table.

**METHOD OF TEACHING **

Choose a suitable and appropriate methods for the lessons.

Note – Irrespective of choosing methods of teaching, always introduce an activities that will arouse pupil’s interest or lead them to the lessons.

### LESSON 2 – PERIMETER

ACTIVITY 1 – INTRODUCTIONPerimeter is the sum of all the length of a shape.

For examples,

Perimeter = 12 m + 5 m + 9 m = 26 m

ACTIVITY 2 – PERIMETER OF TRIANGLEA triangle is any shape with three lines or sides.

The perimeter of a triangle is the sum of all the lengths.

To find the perimeter, add length of its three sides.

Working Example

The Perimeter is 11 cm + 8 cm + 13 cm = 32 cm

Working Example 2Measure and find the perimeter,

Teacher guides pupils to measure and record each length to find the perimeter.

ACTIVITY 3 – WORKING EXERCISEMeasure and find the perimeter,

### LESSON 3 – PERIMETER OF SQUARES AND RECTANGLES

ACTIVITY 1 – SQUARE AND RECTANGLESquare and rectangle are any shape with four lengths.

Square has 4 equal length while rectangle has 2 equal opposite lengths.

ACTIVITY 2 – PERIMETER OF SQUARESFind the perimeter of,

Perimeter is 5 cm + 5 cm + 5 cm + 5 cm = 25 cm.

ACTIVITY 3 – PERIMETER OF RECTANGLESFind the perimeter of,

Perimeter is 7 cm + 12 cm + 7 cm + 12 cm = 38 cm.

ACTIVITY 4 – PERIMETER OF SQUARES AND RECTANGLESTeacher guides pupils to measure, record and find the perimeter of the following:

ACTIVITY 5 – WORKING EXERCISEFind the perimeter of the following:

**LESSON 4 – OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES **
