Check out the 3rd Grade Math Test Prep Bundle.
This third grade area of a rectangle test prep bundle is a no frills all action product meant to cement students' knowledge of using a grid or multiplication processes for determining the area of a rectangle for standardized testing. All ten of the activities included were created entirely in black and white to save on colored ink, and make for easy use of the copy machine.
I use these activities in class and with my testing study group after school.
It was created with the following standards in mind:
3.6(C) 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
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.MD.C.7.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.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.MD.C.7.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.
All of the activities included are designed to be used to fill in any gaps that students may have understanding how to find the area of a rectangle.
Each activity can be completed in a variety of settings to meet the needs of every learner in your classroom.
