Exploring Area in the Animal Kingdom

In Grade 4 Math,  students are required to learn the concept of Area for regular and irregular shapes. Earlier this week we searched the school for items smaller and larger than our 16cm2 paper. It was a fun way to learn!

Today, we accepted a special challenge: to create our own animals and then find the area within. We began on square-centimetre grids before transferring our designs to larger chart grids. Check out our animal creations below, and see us in action as we explore area in our school.
