  2. Have your students find the perimeter of the Olympic logo. Have instructions posted with any tips you may want to give them, such as using the string to measure the perimeter and then measuring the string.
  3. Then have them find the area of the symbol. You may want to guide them through this activity with steps depending on their experience.
  4. Instruct your kids to show how they found both the perimeter and area.
