## What is Area?

Area is space inside a space. The perimeter is the distance around the shape. The yellow shaded area represents the space inside. Students will need to know the correct units for area. When we measure area we include a "squared" after the unit. For example cm², m², km², or centimeter squared, meter squared and kilometer squared.

Below shows an example of area using a 1cm by 1 cm grid. On 1 cm square paper a 5 cm by 5 cm square has an area of 25 cm². A 6 cm by 6 cm square is 36 cm² or 36 boxes. ## Blank Grids 8 x 8
