This story is good for showing the relationship between area and perimeter. It is a bit long to read the whole thing as an anticipatory set, so I would recommend having students work along with the story or pause at certain points to let them make predictions. For example, as the tables are shuffled around in the story, have students work with white boards or manipulatives to see how the area and perimeter are changing (as the tables get pushed together, the perimeter decreases, even though the number of tables stays the same).
