Students are asked to find the area of multiple items in a household. Then they must decide which items can fit in the empty room.
Space is provided for students to show their work. There is also space provided for students to explain their thinking using sentences.
The area of the room is drawn to scale. Therefore, students can use tiles (one inch), square units, to find the area of the empty room.
This task would work best when completed in small groups.
The task is aligned to common core.
