Activity Instructions

Option 1: Place a rectangular shape down on the mat (that fits inside the squares). Have students calculate the area of the shape by counting the number of squares it covers.

Option 2: Create notecards with different multiplication questions. Give students paper strips or cubes the size of the grid squares. Have the students select a notecard and use their paper or cubes to create a shape (array) matching the multiplication problem. Have them find the area of the shape.
