These worksheets will help you practice measuring area in square units and perimeter in units. Let’s begin!

- Area: The area is the space inside a shape, like a rectangle or a square. Think of it like the space that your toys take up on the floor. To measure area, we use square units, like square inches or square centimeters. Here’s how to calculate the area of a rectangle:

**Area = length × width**

For example, if you have a rectangle that are 3 units long and 2 units wide, the area would be: Area = 3 × 2 = 6 square units

- Perimeter: The perimeter is the total distance around a shape. Imagine walking along the edge of a shape, like a fence around your backyard. To measure the perimeter, we add up the lengths of all the sides. Here’s how to calculate the perimeter of a rectangle:

**Perimeter = (2 × length) + (2 × width)**

For example, if you have a rectangle that is 3 units long and 2 units wide, the perimeter would be: Perimeter = (2 × 3) + (2 × 2) = 6 + 4 = 10 units

You will find different shapes with measurements in the Area and Perimeter Worksheets. Your task is to use the formulas above to find the area and perimeter of each shape. Remember to write your answers in square units for the area and units for the perimeter. Have fun and practice your new skills!
