What teachers are saying…

❤️  “Most of my students need the visual to help them understand Area.  I enjoyed doing this whole group and having students enjoy doing the work independently and in small groups.” – Tammy G.

❤️  “I love digital Google Classroom activities, and this was perfect for that. I did some slides as a whole group to make sure they knew what to do. Then they worked with partners to discuss the multiple ways to distribute the tiles. Finally, they did some independently. There were ample slides for practice. Thanks so much!” – Laura B.

❤️  “This was great!  My students were struggling with the area, and this really helped!” – Rachel F.
