Dear Gail,

In addition to the suggestions by Jeanne, I have a few more:

** The following worksheets help your students discover Pick's Theorem on 
their own.  Encourage your students to work through them and move onto the 
section with pictures containing holes: 


You need to have Adobe® Acrobat® Reader® software on your computer to open 
the above link.  If you don't have it, download a free copy of the Reader 
from here first:


** Have you seen the Pick's applet by Alex Bogomolny?


** I found two "Problems of the Week" dealing with Pick's Theorem:

Graphing for Area 

Exploring Area 

Gail, you might end your lesson by challenging your students to think about 
Pick's Theorem in 3 dimensions. Does it (or a variation) hold for volume of 
3 dimensional object? How about volume of the 3-dimensional shapes with 
holes? This makes a great topic for a math project.

Good luck.  Keep in touch and let us know how it goes.
