Transform yourself into a landowner.  You will need to find the perimeter of and decide where to locate structures, fields, pastures, pens, gardens, and corrals on your acres of land.  Following the guidelines listed below cut out a colorful rectangle for each farm part listed being sure to use its’ correct dimensions.  Label it with the correct name and perimeter.  You may choose to arrange them on a brown piece of construction paper and glue them in place.


Farm Part                      Dimensions

House                                        2 in. x 2.5 in.

Barn                                          2 in. x 2 in.

Cornfield                                  3 in. x 4 in.

Wheat Field                              4 in. x 5 in.

Horse Corral                             2 in. x 3 in.

Pigpen                                       1 in. x 1 in.

Cow Pasture                              2 in. x 5 in.

Vegetable Garden                     1 in. x 1.5 in.


* Now use your calculations to proportionally apply your structures on an actual acre of land.
