To help us learn about area we did several activities in class. We played a game with a partner where we needed to create rectangles of different areas based on the product of two dice we rolled. The winner was the person who could fill the larger area of the square centimetre grid.
In teams, we also measured the area of our classroom by creating a newspaper square that measured 1 square metre. (The area was about 65 square metres!)
Finally, we used square tiles to find all the possible rectangles with a given area.
