Maths Finding the perimeter of our shape

For maths today we were looking at calculating the perimeter of a shape. Mr Raj instructed that we play with the measuring tools available and then with a buddy, draw a random shape, calculate the perimeter and convert it into mm’s. Me and my partner chose to use a ruler. We then drew a shape which looked like a lolly. After we drew the shape we used a piece of string to go around the whole shape. Once we finished using the piece of string to measure the shape we then used the tool that we picked which was the ruler. And measured the string along the ruler to see how much centimetres it was. We got 86 centimetres for our perimeter.
