If pacing is a challenge, consider the following modifications and omissions.
Consolidate Lessons 2 and 3, both of which involve measuring and comparing area. From Lesson 3, omit the use of square centimeter tiles and the Application Problem. Have students establish square inches as units, and then tile with them as a strategy to measure area.
Consider omitting Lesson 9, which reviews previously learned skills. If omitting, be sure that students are ready to transition toward more complex practice.
Omit Lessons 15 and 16. These lessons guide students through a project involving floor plans. Skip the application of area that these lessons provide.
