That's because "perimeter" means the distance around something - not the spaces inside. If you count squares inside a figure, you are finding the AREA, not the PERIMETER.

When finding the perimeter of a figure on grid why do you not count the spaces inside the grid?

Because of the definition of what "perimeter" means. It's the distance around the figure ... the distance an ant has to walk to get back to where he started, if he stays on the line. The ant doesn't know or care how many spaces are inside the figure or what size they are. He's simply staying on the line all the way, watching his pedometer and keeping track of how far he has to walk to arrive at "GO" .
