Activity Instructions

Use blue painter’s tape to make a box around the square (see example above). The square root is the number of boxes in the row or column.

For example, what is the square root of 9? Have a student stand on 9. Instruct the student to walk in the boxes (Including the box they are standing in) to reach the edge of the mat where the square root is located.

You can also put bean bags in the boxes for your entire class to count to determine the square root.
