This is a SmartBoard file that introduces area of rectangles and irregular shapes. This lesson includes a brief definition of area followed by 9 slides in which children get hands-on practice finding area. For these slides, there is a shape that students can cover with tiles and count the tiles to determine the area. Seven of these shapes are rectangles and 2 shapes are irregular.
