Area and Perimeter with Square Units

Free and premium, printable “Area and Perimeter with Square Units Worksheets!”

Square units make calculating area simple! Just count the total number of squares. However, square units can make calculating perimeter a bit confusing.

When calculating perimeter with square units, students may be tempted to count each corner square once and move on. But remember, Perimeter = “the Path around.” If you start at a corner and follow the path around you’ll notice that each corner should be counted twice – Once for the distance across the top and once for the distance along the side.
