Find Area By Counting Unit Squares Math Games
In this series of games, your students will learn to measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square in, square ft, and improvised units). The Find Area By Counting Unit Squares learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 3.MD.C.6 as written in the common core national math standards.

The area is the amount of space a 2-dimensional figure occupies. The area is the entire space without gaps inside the border of the figure. All 2-D shapes have an area. A square with a side length of 1 unit is a square unit. The area is measured by the number of square units that fully occupy a space without any gaps. The number of square units it takes to completely occupy a shape is its area. Cover a shape completely with tiles and count to find the area. Use manipulatives and models to count area with unit squares. Use standard units of measure to solve a problem.
