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.
