Perimeter Worksheets

On this webpage you will find our range of worksheets to help your child learn to work out the perimeter of a range of rectangles.

These sheets are graded from easiest to hardest, and each sheet comes complete with answers.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

  • understand what perimeter is;
  • know how to find the perimeter (and area) of a rectangle;
  • know how to find the perimeter (and area) of rectilinear shapes;
  • know how to find the perimeters of regular shapes;
  • know how to work out the side length of a regular shape if we know the perimeter.

What does perimeter mean? Support page

If you are feeling a little confused by the word 'perimeter' and want to go back to basics then try our beginners page on what does perimeter mean.

There is a step-by-step guide to what perimeter is and how to find the perimeter of some simples shapes through worked examples.

Area and Perimeter Activities Interactive Explorer

Try out the app produced by PhET Interactive Simulations from the University of Colorado.

It is a great way of exploring area and perimeter in a fun and engaging way.

We have also created a few challenges that can be used alongside the app.

Perimeter of Rectangles

The following sheets involve finding the perimeter of rectangles and rectilinear shapes.

We also have sheets where the perimeter is given, and the length of one of the sides needs to be found.

Perimeter of Regular Shapes

These sheets involve finding the perimeter of different regular shapes where the length of one side is given.

There are also sheets involving finding the missing side length where the perimeter is given.

Perimeter of Different 2d Shapes Worksheets

This page contains worksheets with a range of 2d shapes.

There are sets of regular shapes, rectangles and other 2d shapes.

They are aimed at 4th and 5th grade.

Perimeter of a Rhombus Support page

This page will help you to find the perimeter of different rhombuses.

We have lots of worked examples of finding the perimeter of a range of rhombuses.

There are simple sheets involving multiplying side lengths by 4, as well as much more complicated versions that have the perpendicular width and height given and need pythagoras' theorem to find the length of the sides.

Perimeter of a Right Triangle Support page

This page will help you find the perimeter of different right triangles.

There are sheets that involve measuring to find the perimeter of right triangles, and also sheets involving using pythagoras' theorem to find the missing side length and then the perimeter.

Perimeter of Circles and Semi-Circles

The perimeter of a circle is also called its circumference.

On this page we have worked examples, practice sheets and perimeter of a circle (and semi-circle) word problems.
