Converting multiple polygons into rasters using iterators

Good morning.

I need to convert several hundred shapefiles into grids and am trying to do it using an iterator in model builder. It seems like I should be using the "Iterate Files" object but it rejects shapefiles as inputs supposedly because they are made up of multiple files(dbf, shp, prj) and it will only iterate a single type of file. I'm not sure how to proceed here so I'm hoping somebody here as advice.
