I needed something hands on to use at a station for area. I created this activity for the students to roll a die/dice, draw the rectangle/square that was created by the numbers, and then record the equation for the area. Students should be allowed to use tiles if needed to help them create the shape. Then to add rigor, I added a column asking the students to create a new rectangle with the same area with different dimensions from the original shape.

This activity should be quick, easy, and engaging to practice or review area.

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.
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.
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.
Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.
Measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square in, square ft, and improvised units).
