# Comparing Areas Worksheets

Make headway with our free pdf comparing areas worksheets that teach how to calculate and compare areas of different geometric figures. Children are expected to find the area of shapes in each grid based on the scale provided and compare pairs of figures. The shapes include triangles, rectangles, parallelograms, trapezoids, pentagons, hexagons, octagons, and more. Counting the unit squares of the shaded regions on scaled grids will drive children to scrutinize the number of fully shaded and partially shaded squares. This makes it easy for them to work out the area of the various geometric shapes illustrated here and then make comparisons between two shapes using the <, >, or = sign. Our printable worksheets are available in both customary and metric units.

We advocate these practice resources for grade 3, grade 4, and grade 5 students.
