Area of Rectangles- Third Grade Project

Texas Revised Math TEKS

3.6C Determine the area of rectangles with whole number side lengths in problems using multiplication related to the number of rows times the number of unit squares in each row;

3.6D decompose composite figures formed by rectangles into non-overlapping rectangles to determine the area of the original figure using the additive property of area.

The students loved this Third Grade Project involving the area of rectangles. Students were given a sheet of grid paper and they were asked to partition the page and create a blueprint of their dream home and find the area of each space. Students enjoyed being creative and using math at the same time!
