Product Description

This FREE activity allows students to use their creativity while practicing area at the same time! Students will draw an item of their choosing on grid paper and find the area of each part of their object! These look GREAT in the hall when finished :)

Aligns with 3.MD.5 and 3.MD.6


Step 1: Students choose which item they would like to create.

Step 2: Students draw creation on grid paper.

Step 3: Students fill in area of each part on the paper provided.

Step 4: Students color their masterpiece!

In my classroom, this activity always brings up great discussion on how to find the area in a quicker manner. Students quickly realize that instead of counting all the unit squares provided, they can use multiplication to find the area much quicker by breaking each rectilinear shape they draw into smaller parts. I normally use this as an activity we do before starting rectilinear area so the transition is easier on my third graders!

You can allow students to choose whichever creation they'd like to make OR you can mix them all up in a bag and let them choose randomly!

I'd love your feedback if you enjoyed this product!
