Area PowerPoint Presentation, for CCSS 3.MD.5 and 3.MD.6, serves as a detailed lesson on measuring area by counting unit squares. The lesson starts with a review of the definition of area and moves into describing unit squares and how to use them to find the area of regular and irregular shapes.
There are six slides containing problems for students to find the area by counting the unit squares. Then there are four slides for students to create their own shapes of a given amount of unit squares along with slides containing possible answers. At the conclusion of the lesson, there is a quick thumbs up and thumbs down assessment that can be used to gauge their mastery of the learning target. This PowerPoint also includes a slide with a four question exit slip to check for understanding. I hope you download and enjoy this PowerPoint lesson with your students!
