How did you get the perimeter of all the plane figures?
Does a circle also have a perimeter?

Pause & Answer


How well do I know this idea?
How prepared am I to move further to this lesson?

Engage
Can you make a hula hoop? How long is the plastic tubing used to make this? (illustrate two
children playing with a hula hoop)
What do you think is the circumference of this object?

The hula hoop can be stretch out into a straight line. (illustrate a
hula hoop. illustrate a hula hoop that is straightened. The length of the
straightened hoop is scaled to 5 cm to 2 m. The length of straightened is 10 cm.)
How long actually is the hula hoop?
Its circumference is 2 meters.
The circles below are the tip of tin cans.

What happens to the circumference of circles as the length of diameter becomes longer?

Explain
When do you use circumference in your life? Talk with your seatmates and discuss about
this. Below are the ideas that you learned in this lesson.
Area is the number of square units it takes to cover a surface.
1. The perimeter or distance around a circle is called circumference.
2. The circumference of a circle increases as the diameter becomes longer.

Elaborate
Get a string and lay around the circumference of the circles. Find the circumferences
of the circles below. (illustrate the circles with these circumferences)
1. 7 cm
2. 10 cm

3. 18 cm
4. 34 cm

5. 48 cm
