    I had an area and perimeter question in mine! It went something along these lines… A base of a pyramid is in the shape of a rectangle one pair is 12cm long and the other is 9 cm what will be the area and perimeter? Something like that!

    I made up a word problem all about fractions. The day we shared the word problems, I loved to find out the answer for all of the problems given.
