### Description

This activity includes:

-Fantastic Area Factor Fun

The objective is to model tiling, using cm. and in. squares to create an area model. In this 2 day activity, kids do this by creating area buddies and a chill space for them. Each group is assigned a multiple to work with.

-Reason About Area with Area Buddy Pairs

The objective is to analyze different rectangles and reason about their area. In this activity, kids get their own area buddy to find the area of, and name. Then they find their partner who has the twin of their area buddy, and record the combined area of the 2.

Area Buddies: Distributive Property Dance Party

The objective is to use the distributive property as a strategy to find the area of rectangles with a number as one of the dimensions that could be broken, and distributed to find the area. In this 2 day activity, groups work with their chosen area buddy to show how they would do this after some class practice activities. After each group was able to explain their poster to me, I let them pick their Distributive Dance Party "add-ons."

-Real World Problem Solving with Area

This 1 day activity will create a real world practice experience for your kids to use for not only understanding area, but also applying their knowledge of arrays, factors, and multiples, patterns, distributive property, and associative property for finding area. This activity includes an extra page for fast finishers.

-Area Buddies Build a Play Place for Their Pets

This 5 part/ 2 day activity will create a real world practice experience for your kids to use for not only understanding area, but also applying their knowledge of arrays, factors, and multiples, patterns, distributive property, adding and subtracting to find the area of composite shapes. Each group is assigned a page (with differentiated levels) to find the area using critical thinking skills, and hints given by the Area Buddy's pets. On day 2 groups will present their findings while students follow along with the pages and take notes on solutions.

-Area Buddies Beautify Their City

The objective is to find the area of a composite shape. This 2 day activity will create a real world practice experience for your kids to use for not only understanding area, but also applying their knowledge of factors, products, their association with length, width, and area, and adding the area of composite shapes for finding total area. In addition, they'll practice measurement skills as they measure the area of the space to figure out the cm=m scale for the city space they will be designing to beautify their portion of the city. In the end, they'll present what they found so the class can collect information to add the total area of the composite shape of the city beautification project.
-teacher guides

Each activity has a teacher guide with step by step instructions explaining how to use this resource. I give details about how to use each page.

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use tiling to show in a concrete case that the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths 𝘢 and 𝘣 + 𝘤 is the sum of 𝘢 × 𝘣 and 𝘢 × 𝘤. Use area models to represent the distributive property in mathematical reasoning.
Recognize area as additive. Find areas of rectilinear figures by decomposing them into non-overlapping rectangles and adding the areas of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.
Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures and understand concepts of area measurement.
A square with side length 1 unit, called “a unit square,” is said to have “one square unit” of area, and can be used to measure area.
A plane figure which can be covered without gaps or overlaps by 𝘯 unit squares is said to have an area of 𝘯 square units.
