# Calculating the Area of a Hexagon

Finding the area of a hexagon may seem like a daunting task to your child, but there's a trick to it. Breaking a hexagon down into other shapes like rectangles and triangles first makes it easy! In this worksheet, your child will divide each hexagon into other shapes whose area he knows how to calculate, then write the names of the shapes on the line. At the end, he'll use what he's learned to find the area of the final hexagon using the measurements given.
