  • Measuring Area Around the House: Look for opportunities at home to talk with your child about area—the two-dimensional measure of the size of a surface. If you have square tiles covering a floor or bathroom wall, ask, “How many squares are there?” Ask your child to help you figure out the area of a tabletop or the floor of a room by using different common objects as the unit of measure. For example: “How many sheets of notebook paper would it take to cover the kitchen floor? How many index cards would it take to cover a table?” Your child can estimate the answer first and then use the sheets of paper or index cards to find the exact amount.
