# Finding Area with unit Squares - Lesson for Grade 3, Chapter - Area and Perimeter

In the lesson "Finding Area with Unit Squares," Grade 3 students embark on an interactive journey to master the concept of area within the broader chapter of Area and Perimeter, nestled in the unit on Data, Geometry, Area, and Perimeter. Through engaging activities such as the Understanding Area Worksheet, Farm Area Worksheet, Tile Area Worksheet, and a comprehensive Understanding Area exercise, students will delve into the foundational principles of measuring space within given boundaries.

Learning to calculate area is not just a mathematical skill but a critical thinking tool that applies to real-world scenarios. Students will learn how to count unit squares to determine the area of various shapes, enhancing their spatial reasoning and problem-solving abilities. This skill is vital for tasks ranging from planning a garden layout to understanding the space needed for a project or furniture arrangement, making it an essential part of their mathematical toolkit.

By mastering the concept of area through hands-on worksheets, students will not only improve their math skills but also gain a practical understanding of how objects fit into spaces, preparing them for more complex geometrical concepts in the future.

• ### Activity 1 / Understanding Area Worksheet

Learning to calculate the area of a space is difficult for young learners. Let’s make it easier using colorful visuals, rather than memorizing a formula.
While completing this understanding area worksheet for 3rd grade, kids use colorful blocks to calculate the area of the shapes.

• ### Activity 2 / Farm Area Worksheet

At the farm, there are a lot of fun activities to do, and fun animals to see. Ask your kids if they have ever been to a farm and what their favorite part of the visit was. Did your kids see some hay bales when they visited a farm? Look at the picture in this worksheet and ask them to identify the hay bales. Now, you can help your kids count the hay bales in the picture, and then find out the area. After finding the area, circle the correct number.

• ### Activity 3 / Tile Area Worksheet

Before your students can become experts in solving simple mathematical problems, you must help them grasp all concepts first. Measuring objects can seem intimidating at first, but if you properly teach your kindergartners about the different ways of measuring, and the parts to measure, they would find it easier. In this worksheet, help your kids measure the areas of the tiled walls, and then check off the tiled walls that have an area of 36.

• ### Activity 4 / Understanding Area - Quiz

This quiz assesses students’ ability to use unit squares and multiplication to find the area of rectangles.
