Our Measuring Areas in Square Units lesson plan teaches students about unit squares and how they can be used to measure area. During this lesson, students are asked to practice building shapes with a certain number of unit squares, explaining why they decided to build that specific shape. Students are also asked to count unit squares to find the area of given figures, demonstrating their understanding of how unit squares can be used to measure area.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to measure areas by counting unit squares.
