Measuring Area

 

This week we measured how many squares it takes to cover a bigger square. We estimated how many we thought it would be and then checked our answers. We worked out that you need to put the squares right next to each other with no gaps in order to measure the area of the shape. We worked out that the area of a shape is how much space that shape takes up.
