### Description

This fall-themed math pack is designed to guide children from 'counting squares' to seeing area as an array and its relationship to multiplication. Included are a poster/anchor chart, and 6 activity pages.

Under the premise helping 'Farmer Ben' plan a new pumpkin patch, students will count squares, multiply, and use tiling to determine the area. They will also use a model which illustrates the distributive property as it relates to determining area.

3.MD.6 Measure areas by counting unit squares
3.MD.7 Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.
a. Find the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths
by tiling it, and show that the area is the same as would be
found by multiplying the side lengths.
b. Multiply side lengths to find areas of rectangles with whole-
number side lengths in the context of solving real world and
mathematical problems, and represent whole-number
products as rectangular areas in mathematical reasoning.
c. 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.
