5:01 Measurement
Estimate the area of the triangle. Draw a shape on the grid with a given area/ perimeter. Find the volume of each model. Draw the top view of each model.
5:02 Square metres
Make a square metre - which ones are correct. Estimate the area of each shape. Draw a diagram and work out square metres of tiles needed. Circle areas that would not be easy to measure in square metres.
5:03 Calculating area
Use Area formula for rectangles.
5:03C Calculating area
Put dots at every centimetre on each side of the shapes. Join the dots to find the area. Find the area by using the formula: Area = Length x Breadth. Measure the length and breadth of the shapes. Find the area of each.
5:04 Perimeter and area
Find the perimeter and area of rectangle and square, using formula. Measure the length of the sides of each shape and calculate its perimeter - triangles and kite.
5:04C Area and perimeter of rectangles
Find the area and perimeter of each rectangle. Use multiplication to show a quicker way to work out the perimeters of the rectangles. - Perimeter = 2xL + 2xB
5:04E Calculating area
Extension page. Calculate the area of the rectangles by measuring in millimetres and using the formula Area = Length x Breadth. Find the area of these shapes by drawing a line to make two rectangles. Add the areas to find the total area.
5:05 Area and perimeter of rectangles
Find the area of the rectangles using the formula, Area = Length x Breadth. Measure each side to check its length. Measure the sides and find the area and perimeter of each shape. Compare area of shapes with identical perimeters.

Test of Area
5:06 Area of triangles
Make each triangle into a rectangle. Find the area of the triangle by halving the area of the rectangle made. Which triangle, if drawn to the correct size, would be the largest? Which triangles are drawn to the correct size?
5:06C Area of triangles
What is the area of each rectangle? Draw a diagonal on each rectangle to cut it in half. Write the area of the triangles made.
5:07 The square kilometre
Use the scale to draw another shape that represents one square kilometre. Match the areas that would be measured in square kilometres. Calculator. Look at the areas of the states and territories on a map of Australia.
5:08 Calculating area
Measure the sides of these shapes and find the area. Complete the table to show the areas of squares. Measure the sides and halve the area of each rectangle to find the area of the triangle. Colour the correct answers.
5:08C The square kilometre
What is the perimeter of this square kilometre? Shade the areas that represent 1 km squared. What is the perimeter of the rectangular area that you shaded? Match the areas that would be measured in square kilometres. Which Australian state or territory would have thr largest/ smallest area etc.
5:08E Scale and plans
Complete the table of the plan sizes of objects, using the scale, 1 cm = 1 m. Draw objects to given scale. Draw a plan of the garage, placing all of the objects within it. Solve related problems.

5:MG39 The square kilometre
Use the scale to draw another shape that represents one square kilometre. Match the areas that would be measured in square kilometres. Calculator. Look at the areas of the states and territories on a map of Australia.
5:MG39C The square kilometre
What is the perimeter of this square kilometre? Shade the areas that represent 1 km squared. What is the perimeter of the rectangular area that you shaded? Match the areas that would be measured in square kilometres. Which Australian state or territory would have thr largest/ smallest area etc.
5:MG40 The hectare
Circle the shapes that would represent 1 hectare. Use a trundle wheel to measure 1 hectare in your playground. Colour blocks on the aerial map to show one hectare blocks. Estimate the area of the bigger blocks. How many Olympic pools would fit into one hectare? How many average house blocks of 700 square metres would fit into a hectare? Order the units of area from largest to smallest.
5:MG41 Hectares
Estimate the area of each place as more/ less/ about 1 hectare. Circle the areas that would be measured in hectares. Write the areas in the abbreviated form of hectares. Convert between square metres and hectares.
5:MG41C Hectares
Match areas to moist suitable unit of measurement. Write areas that would be measured in the given units. Write each area in the short form. Change square metres to hectares by dividing by 10 000. State the areas described in hectares.
