# Understanding Area - Lesson for Grade 3, Chapter - Area and Perimeter

In the lesson "Understanding Area," Grade 3 students will embark on an engaging journey through the concepts of area and perimeter, specifically focusing on the unit of Data, Geometry, Area, and Perimeter. This lesson is designed to provide students with a foundational understanding of how to calculate the area of various shapes using area formulas. This knowledge is crucial as it applies to real-world scenarios, enhancing their problem-solving and critical thinking skills.

During the lesson, students will engage in activities such as the Area Formula Worksheet, where they will practice applying the area formula to calculate the space within different shapes. The Parking Area and Sports Area Worksheets offer practical applications of these concepts, allowing students to visualize how area calculations impact real-life situations, such as designing a parking lot or a sports field. Learning to calculate area equips students with the ability to think spatially, organize spaces efficiently, and understand the concept of space management, which are essential skills not only in mathematics but also in daily life activities and future academic endeavors. This lesson lays the groundwork for understanding more complex geometric concepts and fosters an appreciation for the role of geometry in the world around us.

• ### Activity 1 / Area Formula Worksheet

Kids learn the geometric concept of area with this fun-filled area formula worksheet PDF.
Using simple explanations and a step-by-step process, kids learn the formula to calculate the area by counting squares to find the length and width, and finally multiplying them together to get area.

• ### Activity 3 / Parking Area Worksheet

Math might not be your child’s favorite subject, but this does not mean that they can’t be really good at the subject. Solving math problems can seem intimidating at first glance. You can teach your kids that math equations are really not all that difficult to solve, and all they need is constant practice. In this worksheet, your kids will need to calculate the area of the parking lot, which means the length plus the width. Help them read the labels and then check the box that has the correct answer.

• ### Activity 4 / Sports Area Worksheet

Calculating the area of different shapes, objects, and places should not be too difficult for your students. Help them understand it better by showing them that the area of a place is simply the length x width. This means that the length of the place will be measured, and then multiplied by the wideness. Look at the picture in the worksheet, and help your preschoolers read the labels and check the box that has the correct answer.
