One of the MAJOR CONTENT standards for THIRD grade is geometric measurement and the ability to understand concepts of AREA and relate area to multiplication and to addition. Students must be able to multiply side lengths to find areas of RECTANGLES with whole-number side lengths. They must also be able to recognize area as additive and find areas of RECTILINEAR figures by decomposing them into non-overlapping rectangles and adding the areas of the non-overlapping parts. In this activity, students will be asked to find the area of both rectangular and rectilinear shapes and record their answers on a recording sheet.
Directions to the Teacher: Print and cut out cards for students. You may choose to laminate for future use. Make copies of the Recording Sheet for students. This is a great activity for a math center, math workstation, or independent practice.
