In the last week of Term 3 the students spent some time exploring in the concept of area.
We determined that area is the space inside a shape or the space that a shape covers. The students then used grid paper to create pictures and they worked out the area that their pictures covered.
Later in the week we created the township of “Areasville”. Students had to use construction paper to create houses and then they determined the area of their house. Finally the class had fun creating our own township.
