Area of Straight-Edged Shapes on Grids - Presentation & Differentiated Worksheets

Presentation and Differentiated Worksheets that move from the basics of counting squares, extend to tricky problem-solving and prompt students to discover the formula for area of rectangles for themselves.

Includes one Powerpoint that goes through the basic concepts, two worksheets (3 pages each) that go through the core content at slightly different paces, and a Challenge worksheet (2 pages) that has students working out rectangles without a grid, much trickier areas to work out, and drawing shapes that have to match multiple given properties.

Note: The presentation was made as Google Slides that I’ve made available to view online for free at I’ve downloaded it as a Powerpoint file and included them here so that you can keep it forever, edit it, print slides out, etc, which you can’t do with the online version.
