6:01 Area
Write the abbreviation for each unit of area. Match the area to the unit of measurement. If the line represents one km draw one square km. Write the unit used to measure the area of given places or objects. Find the areas shown. Circle the labels of areas that would have very large numbers if measured in square metres, but are too small to be measured in square kilometres.
6:02 Area of triangles
Circle triangles with same area as A. Use rule - half x base x height to find area of triangles.
6:02C Area of triangles
Show the base and height of each triangle using red lines. Use the formula Area = half x base x height to find areas of triangles.
6:03 Using scale for plans and drawings
Find the scaled measurement and real size of the marked dimension of each scaled drawing. Complete the table. Where would you find some scale models or drawings? Complete the measurements for each room in the house plan. Use a calculator to find the real areas.
6:04 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.

Test of Area
6:05 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.
6:05C 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.
6:05E Area and perimeter
Extension page. Find the areas. Use rectangles to find areas of unusual shapes. Draw 3 different rectangles that have areas of 24 square centimetres.
6:06 Calculating area of irregular shapes
Draw a line to make 2 rectangles and find total area. Challenge - Find area of a rectangle with a piece missing.
6:06E Calculating the area of irregular sha...
Extension page. Divide shapes into 2 or 3 rectangles and find total areas. Use Base 10 shorts (square centimetre blocks)to make alphabet letters and find their areas.
6:07 Surface area of rectangular prisms
Find the surface area of each prism by counting the square centimetres on each face. What is the volume of each prism?

6:MG15 Area
Write the abbreviation for each unit of area. Match the area to the unit of measurement. If the line represents one km draw one square km. Write the unit used to measure the area of given places or objects. Find the areas shown. Circle the labels of areas that would have very large numbers if measured in square metres, but are too small to be measured in square kilometres.
6:MG16 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.
6:MG16C 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.
6:MG17 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?
6:MG18 Area of triangles
Circle triangles with same area as A. Use rule - half x base x height to find area of triangles.
6:MG18C Area of triangles
Show the base and height of each triangle using red lines. Use the formula Area = half x base x height to find areas of triangles.
6:MG25 Comparison of perimeter and area
Find the perimeter and area of rectangles/ square. Measure the length of the sides of each shape - triangle/ kite, and calculate its perimeter. Write the name of each shape.
6:MG25C Doubling side lengths
6:MG26 Solving area problems
Find the area of each shape using the lengths shown on the diagram.
6:MG26C Calculating the area of irregular sha...
Divide shapes into 2 or 3 rectangles and find total areas. Use Base 10 shorts (square centimetre blocks)to make alphabet letters and find their areas.
