Pigs in a pen, that’s what a perimeter will do,
keep them in, so add up the sides
and you will always be sure to know
that important word that’s called perimeter.
Oh, yes, perimeter (clap, clap, clap), area, volume
We will sing about perimeter (clap, clap, clap)
area, volume, now
Little square tiles, that fill up an area...
How many cubic blocks fill the volume of a box?...
