**WHAT'S INCLUDED?**

**✅AREA OF RECTANGLES MINI LESSON**

There is an interactive mini-lesson included that students can glue into their notebooks to help them have something to reference after learning each of the three ways to find the area. This interactive notebook entry is "no-nonsense" which means that students simply have to cut and glue. There is no folding to make it easier for you to teach the lesson faster and to keep students on track.

**✅10 AREA WORKSHEETS**

In the ten area worksheets included, students practice counting the unit squares, multiplying to find area, tiling to find area, a mix of all three, deciding which rectangle has a bigger area, finding the unshaded and shaded area of rectangles, finding area of different rooms in a picture, shade in given areas, draw areas, and match the area to the correct answer.

**✅ 4 AREA ERROR ANALYSIS PAGES**

Students look at four different work samples and decide which pages are right and which are wrong based on what is shown. These are perfect for math talk or whole group discussions. The error analysis pages help with evaluating common third grade math mistakes.

**✅AREA CRAFT**

An area craftivity is included where students get to use their creative side while calculating area at the same time!

**✅EMOJI MATH SORT**

This is a sorting activity where students put a smile or a frown emoji on top of each task card. If the area is correct, a happy smile is put on top of it. If the wrong area was found, the students put a frown on top of the task card.

**✅HANDS-ON ACTIVITY**

There is a hands-on activity where students have to use their knowledge of area using manipulatives to make the correct area. There are 3 versions to allow for easy differentiation!

**✅GAME #1: BUILDING BLOCK CREATIONS GAME**

There are also 20 finding area game cards included. In the game, students have to find the area of each "building block kid creation." Students will love the cute game cards.

**✅ GAME #2: BUILD AN AQUARIUM GAME**

Each player gets a background to build their aquarium on. Playing cards and fish pieces go in the middle. Each time you get an answer correct, you earn a piece for your aquarium. Chance cards are provided to spice up gameplay. You never know who’s going to win with these included! The first person to finish getting 10 fish items in their aquarium wins!

**✅ GAME #3: WHOLE CLASS GAME**

I call this game "Bucket Filler!". Set up the task cards all around the room for students. Print enough of each task card for every student. Give each student a recording sheet. Let students wander the room and solve each task card. When they solve a card, they bring it to the teacher to be checked. If it's correct, they get to drop the task card in a bucket. At the end of gameplay, the teacher draws names out of the bucket. Those students earn a small prize as a reward (an eraser, a pencil, etc).

**✅ GAME #4: AREA RACING GAME**

This game is called "Line Them Up!". In the game, students race to see which team can line their cards up in the correct order first. Here are the steps to play. Mix up each set of cards well. Give a set of cards to each team. Start the race. Students find the START card first. They put this down. Once the start card is found, students find the answer to the equation. They continue to “Line Them Up” until they reach the FINISH card. The first team done wins!

**✅21 AREA AND PERIMETER POSTERS**

There are 21 area and perimeter posters for you to hang on the wall for students to reference during your area and perimeter unit. These are a great helpful reminder for students when learning about the difference between area and perimeter.

This resource includes everything you need to teach the basics of area to your students. This product was designed for third graders, but would work great as a review for fourth graders as well. A color and black and white version is included of each game and activity.

**This aligns with 3rd Grade Common Core Standards 3.MD.5-3.MD.8:**

- Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures and understand concepts of area measurement.
- Measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square in, square ft, and improvised units).
- Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.
- Solve real world and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.

*This aligns with 2nd Grade Texas TEKS:*

- TEKS 2.9F: use concrete models of square units to find the area of a rectangle by covering it with no gaps or overlaps, counting to find the total number of square units, and describing the measurement using a number and the unit

*This aligns with 3rd Grade Texas TEKS:*

- TEKS 3.6C: determine the area of rectangles with whole number side lengths in problems using multiplication related to the number of rows times the number of unit squares in each row
- TEKS 3.6D: decompose composite figures formed by rectangles into non-overlapping rectangles to determine the area of the original figure using the additive property of area
- TEKS 3.7B: determine the perimeter of a polygon or a missing length when given perimeter and remaining side lengths in problems

**This aligns with Florida BEST Standards (B.E.S.T.)**

- MA.3.GR.2.1 Explore area as an attribute of a two-dimensional figure by covering the figure with unit squares without gaps or overlaps. Find areas of rectangles by counting unit squares.
- MA.3.GR.2.2 Find the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths using a visual model and a multiplication formula.
