Evaluation: This activity can inspire a lot of discussion about the shapes that can produce the same area. It also very effectively makes the point that same area does not mean same perimeter.

Modification: You can use a combination of squares and rectangle (doubles or triples of the squares used) and even right triangles for more advanced students.

This is also a great way to explore the multiplication facts. If you do not allow any shapes other than squares and rectangles, the lengths and widths will be the factors of the areas In every case.
