Measurement homework assignment

As part of this unit we have been studying area metric units, such as square centimeters, square inch, square foot, etc. This weekend the task is to find buildings (around town or online) that are for sale/for lease and are advertising the square footage available. The purpose of this assignment is to show our students how what they are studying applies in the outside world. Here is one sample below:
