Our Introduction to Area lesson plan equips students to define area, explain the concept of area, and identify the area of a square and rectangle or other given spaces. This lesson provides varying opportunities to measure objects and to visualize the application of concepts. Students are asked to utilize their critical thinking skills as they identify jobs that require finding the area of an object. Students are also asked to complete practice problems in which they find the area of a shape in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define area, explain the concept of area, and identify the area of a square and rectangle or other given spaces.
