FREE MATH LESSON - “Dream House: An Additive Area Project (Common Core FREEBIE!)”

by Blair Turner
3rd - 4th Grade

This "Dream House" project is a super-fun way to attack additive area concepts. This resource is aligned with Common Core standards for grade 3, but would work well in any classroom that is exploring area.

Common Core Alignment:
CCSS.Math.Content.3.MD.C.7d Recognize area as additive. Find areas of rectilinear figures by decomposing them into non-overlapping rectangles and adding the areas of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.

This fun freebie includes 3 pages:
•"Dream House" graph paper
•student directions/recording space
•photographs/examples for teacher and/or student reference

Your students will LOVE it and you will too - engaging, easy to prep, meaningful, fun and best of all - FREE!
