This Between the Lines activity & project also includes:

Explore linear and square dimensions by comparing areas of similar figures. A creative set of five activities designed for elementary through high school classes asks young scholars to compare areas of specific polygons. The first two levels use pattern blocks to represent the area of given figures. Subsequent activities compare areas of triangles using dot paper and compare areas of overlapping squares.
