Welcome to today's math class! Today we will be learning about area. Do you know what area is? Area is the amount of space inside a shape.

Warm-Up Activity

Let's begin our lesson with a fun activity. I am going to show you a few shapes on the board. Can you tell me which shape has the largest area? Which shape has the smallest area?

Direct Instruction

Now that we have warmed up our brains, let's dive into our lesson. We will start by learning about the formula to calculate area. The formula for the area of a rectangle is length x width.


Let's take a look at this rectangle on the board. Its length is 6cm and its width is 4cm. Now that we know the formula for area, can someone tell me how to calculate the area of this rectangle?

Guided Practice

Great job! Now that we know how to calculate area, let's practice a couple more examples as a class. Ready?

Independent Practice

Now that we have practiced together, it's time for you to practice on your own. Please work on the worksheet provided and remember to use the formula for area that we learned today.


Congratulations! You have all learned about area today. I hope you enjoyed our lesson. Remember, area is the amount of space inside a shape and can be calculated using length x width. Keep practicing and see you next time!
