This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 6, Unit 1, Grade 6. This activity allows students to practice finding and reasoning about the area of various parallelograms on and off a grid. Students need to make sense of the measurements and relationships in the given figures, identify an appropriate pair of base-height measurements to use, and recognize that two parallelograms with the same base-height measurements (or with different base-height measurements but the same product) have the same area.
