A 8 x 8 square made of four 4x4 squares would be one shape. So would an L-shaped figure with legs of two 4x4 and three 4x4 squares (sharing one square), or a T-shaped figure (3 squares connected to 2 at them middle, sharing one square). Try to draw them from my description. They are all whole shapes.

A narrow rectangle with FOUR 4x4 squares on top of one another is another example
