This four-day unit (plus a fifth day for assessment) is filled with engaging centers activities, lesson plans, assessments (+ answer key!) as well as worksheets and PowerPoints!
The unit starts out very concrete so that students can develop a strong conceptual understanding for what area is and how to find it. These hands-on activities are exciting and engaging! The unit will gradually get more abstract as the days progress. On the final day, students will measure a shape without a grid and find its area. They will apply their conceptual and procedural knowledge that they have practiced throughout the unit to accomplish this. I hope your students love this unit as much as mine did!
Included in this unit:
-Diagnostic/Summative Assessment and Answer Key
-4 Lesson Plans (With script and CCSS Alignments)
-6 Centers Activities (including a memory game and board game)
