My students are LOVING learning about area. We created an anchor chart together to remember that area means the inside of a shape or the top/surface of an object. Then, we got a little creative with our math! I got this great lesson from Blair Turner on TpT, called Dream Home. The students get to design their own dream home with whatever rooms they would like. I had my students find the area of each of their rooms and write it on the back of the papers. They got very creative with their houses!
