For today's Maths activity - I would like you to revisit Area (counting squares inside a shape).


The area of a shape is the amount of space taken up by a 2D shape (or the amount of squares inside the shape).


We were very good at working out area when we learnt about it in school! 


For example, look at the image below.


This blue square has 25 squares inside of it, so the area of this square is 25cm!
