Before your scholars know how to multiply side lengths to find an area, give them some practice in simply counting units. They examine shapes that have already been segmented into units, counting them to get the area. There are three sets of three; learners circle the one in each set with the greatest area. Watch for assumptions such as the tallest or longest shape having the largest area. Consider asking for predictions before they complete this activity.
